Abstract

Comparative study of hydrodynamic and experimental models for the routing of floods caused by hydroelectric power plant operation F.C.B. Mascarenhas", M.R.R. de CarvalW o/ m'o de Jomez'ro, , ^20 (fe .A. & 00, TZzo (fe Brazil ABSTRACT The flood wave movement downstream of a hydroelectric power plant has been recently studied mostly by the hydrodynamic approach, resulting in computational models that try to simulate the set of the power plant operation rules. The combined use of physical models can be a helpful tool in the adjustments and in the elimination of fictitious results, mainly in those cases where the topography of the downstream valley is complicated. In this paper a comparison is made between experimental measurements carried out in a physical model and results of the counterpart hydrodynamic model, which is based on the numerical solutio
