Turbulence models in rivers

Postby melissacastera@gmail.com » Wed Jul 17, 2013 20:19

Hello Mohiders,

I am working with a 3D model of a river of around 300km long, and its width varies from 800 meters to 6 km. I am considering the Turbulence_equation in vertical direction and Smagorinsky in horizontal. Both of them have coefficients and keywords to define.
Do you have any idea of which model best suits for rivers and their configuration values? Or papers to recommend?

I do not have velocities to compare with obtained from the model. So, I would like to impose a condition which has showed good results in other similar rivers.

Thanks and regards, Melissa
