Investigations of the Difference in Dam Break Modeling Approaches between 1-D and 2-D Hydrodynamic Model
There are different numerical models performed on hydrodynamic behavior of dam break flood in canals and floodplains based on 1D and 2D modeling approaches. In recognition of increasing demand to precise modeling of dam break flood, and due to the limited instructions to choose the best computational model, this article appraises the difference between 1D and 2D modeling of the phenomenon based on the logical comparison of the results. For this purpose the Zayandeh-Rood dam in Iran was used as the case study and MIKE11 and MIKE21 are used for numerical exploration of the problem. The reliability of each approach is assessed and the applicability of each method for exact analyzing the dam break phenomena was demonstrated.
