Flooding flows in city crossroads: experiments and 1D modelling

N. Riviere, R. J. Perkins, B. Chocat & A. Lecus
This study focuses on the discharge distribution in an intersection of four channels, similar to a city crossroad. The channels and the intersection are all horizontal. Flow enters through two of the channels, and leaves through the other two. The flow is subcritical everywhere, and flow depths are controlled by vertical weirs at the exits of the outlet channels. The main variables that are measured are the flow rates in the four channels. When the...
