Abstract

In normalized or canalized rivers the waterlevel is kept within small limits by hydraulic control structures (weirs, gates,...). These structures ensure the protection of riparians from inundation, while at the same time optimal navigation conditions are created. In flood periods, many movements are needed to maintain the optimum waterlevel. Different hydraulic control structures on one river reach, has as consequence that control actions of one affect the others, resulting in an increase of movements of the downstream ones. In order to avoid this inconvenience, an interactive control procedure is developed and tested. A case study is presented.
