Abstract

Die hidrouliese gedrag van saamgestelde kanale word bemoeilik deur die interaksie tussen hoofkanaal- en vloedvlaktevloeitempo's. Oorvereenvoudigde analise kan aansienlike foute in die beramings van drakapasiteite en vloedvlaktes tot gevolg hê. Bestaande vloeiberekeningsmetodes word in dié verhandeling hersien en nuwe tegnieke wat konsekwent meer betroubaar is as dié tans in gebruik, word uiteengesit.

The hydraulic behaviour of compound channels is made complex by the interactions between main channel and flood plain flows. Oversimplified analysis can result in large errors in estimates of carrying capacities or flood levels. In this paper existing discharge computation methods are reviewed and new techniques are presented that are consistently more reliable than those in current use.
