Simulation of Flow in a Rectangular Meandering Channel
This paper is concerned with the numerical solution of two-dimensional flows in a rectangular meandering channel. The technique of boundary-fitted coordinate system is used to overcome the difficulties resulting from the complicated shape of natural river boundaries; the method of physical fractional steps is used to solve the partial differential equations in the transformed plane. Comparison between computed and experimental data shows a satisfactory agreement.
