Effect of bed roughness on the mixing layers in a 90░ asymmetrical confluence
Author : ST╔PHAN CRE╦LLE(1), LAURENT SCHINDFESSEL(1) & TOM DE MULDER(1)
ABSTRACT
In this paper, the mixing layer between the two incoming flows in a 90 degree, asymmetrical open channel confluence is
investigated. Specific attention is given towards looking into the effect of bed roughness on the flow patterns in the
confluence. This analysis is performed in a Serret-Frenet type axis system, in order to come up with a more convenient
way of representing the measurement data. The effects on the velocity distribution, velocity difference over the mixing
layer, width and location of the mixing layer are studied, and found to be influenced.
