Research on the Numerical Simulation of Zoning Flood Retarding and Sand Silting of Flood Plain in the Lower Yellow River
The 2-D water and sediment mathematical model which reflects flood retarding and sand silting of flood plain in the Lower Yellow River has been set up in this paper. Through carrying on 2-D water and sediment numerical simulation of the “96.8” typical flood, the authors studied influence of zoning flood retarding and sand silting on flood travel, flow structure of floodplain-channel and transver exchange of water and sediment. The simulating results in different conditions show that, adopting the zoning flood retarding and sand silting in the Lower Yellow River effectively worked on retarding flood and sharpening peaks in the flood retarding basin, guaranteed and expanded transver exchange of water and sediment in the floodplain and channel and maintained the river channel’s vigor. This can relieve “secondary suspended river” states in the Low Yellow River to a certain extent.
