Numerical modeling of reservoir sedimentation and flushing processes
As rivers flow into reservoirs, part of the transported sediment will be deposited. Sedimentation in the reservoir may significantly reduce reservoir storage capacity. Reservoir capacity can be recovered by removing deposited sediment by dredging or flushing. Generally speaking, the latter is preferable to the former. An accurate estimation sedimentation volume and its removal are required for the development of a long term operation plan in the design stage. One-dimensional, 1D, models are more suitable for a long term simulation of channel cross section change of a long study reach than two ...
