  • Modelling of climatic change effects on runoff values using bird swarm
           algorithm: case study - Seine basin (France)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 359 - 374
      Abstract: The primary focus of this paper is the evapotranspiration (ET)-runoff modelling on an annual scale in the Seine basin. In this study, bird swarm algorithm (BSA) is used to estimate mathematical influence of temperature on runoff values. We employ the rural engineering model (GR1) for annual timestep. We calibrate GR1 model with the ET values using BSA, determining the model parameter sets that best reflect the transformation of evapotranspiration into flow. The calibration was done with Matlab software in a computer. Statistical parameters values give acceptable runoff values for all climatic conditions modelled by BSA-high values of climatic condition (BSA-HVCC = 0.56) and low values of climatic condition (BSA-LVCC = 0.82). Variations caused by climatic change are translated by the variation coefficient (V.C1 = 0.67 for high values of climatic condition and V.C2 = 0.99 for low values of climatic condition), which is the main objective of our work.

  • Effect of non-uniformity of sediment size on the Movability Number

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Aamer Majid Bhat, Manzoor Ahmad Ahanger
      Pages: 375 - 389
      Abstract: Sediment on a channel bed is generally not composed of particles of the same size. This non-uniformity affects its incipient motion condition. As a model of an otherwise very complicated situation, two sediment sizes are considered here. A single parameter of non-uniformity is the ratio <i>d</i>/<i>D</i> of the two sizes, where <i>d</i> is the overlying moving sediment size and <i>D</i> the size of the underlying sediment. This study, with the help of experimental data of previous researchers, examines the influence of non-uniformity of sediment on the parameter of incipient motion, critical Movability Number. The empirical curves given by three different studies for uniform sediment are examined in the more general non-uniform context. It is found that the critical Movability Number decreases when the <i>d</i>/<i>D</i> ratio increases, that is, as the overlying sediment size increases and there is less likelihood of grains being hidden in interstices of the underlying layer. However, other factors like specific gravity, size, and the sediment surface features of the sediment have their individual influence on its determination.

  • Bivariate flood frequency analysis - a case study of Hirakud reservoir
           inflow

      Authors: Raj Beer Padhee, Anil Kumar Kar, Pradip Kumar Das
      Pages: 390 - 405
      Abstract: Reservoir inflow as form of flood hydrograph has significant role in reservoir operation. The inflow (discharge), volume and duration are common variables, and the fourth variable of flood hydrograph, i.e., the time to peak has been introduced into the analysis. New combinations are generated for peak (<i>Q<SUB align="right">p</i>) and time to peak (<i>T<SUB align="right">p</i>), volume-time to peak and duration-time to peak, to determine the bivariate probability distributions. The correlation of <i>Q<SUB align="right">p</i>-<i>T<SUB align="right">p</i> was approximately equal to zero, behaving independently. The EV1 distribution showing best fit marginals for peak, volume and duration with corresponding AIC values as -45.57, -47.29, -51.20 and for <i>T<SUB align="right">p</i>, gamma remains the best fit with -45.66. These best fit marginal for different variables were applied to the family of Archimedean copula along with dependency factor (<i>θ</i>), determining the bivariate probability distributions for best fit copula for different bivariate pairs and its conditional probability were determined.

      Abstract: The use of remote sensing data and the geographic information system (GIS) to prepare flood risk maps has gained enormous popularity among researchers. In the present study, a flood risk zone map has been prepared for Jodhpur District, Rajasthan using remote sensing and GIS techniques. CartoDEM Version-3 having 30 m spatial resolution along with Landsat 8 OLI/TIRS satellite images with 30 m spatial resolution is used to prepare thematic layers for elevation, slope, drainage density and land use. Monthly precipitation data from climatic research unit at a grid size of 0.5° latitude by 0.5° longitude is used to prepare rainfall map with 30 m spatial resolution. Soil map for the study area also at 30 m spatial resolution is extracted from FAO digital soil map of the world and then converted to raster data format using feature to raster converter tool in ArcGIS 10.3. Ranking and weight determined from multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) technique are assigned to the raster maps of the variables. The thematic layers were combined with the weighted overlay method in ArcGIS 10.3 software to determine categorised flood risk zone map of the study area.

  • Assessment of damage for dam break incident in Lao PDR using SAR data

      Authors: Padam Jee Omar, Vikram Kumar
      Pages: 421 - 434
      Abstract: Among various human-made hazards, failure of dam is common and a terrible hazard. This paper represents the impact of flood resulting from dam failure of Saddle Dam D in Champasak Province of Lao People's Democratic Republic on 23 July 2018. A synergetic approach was adopted for estimation of the lateral extent of floodwater and flood depth. Useful information for disaster mapping planning is obtained by overlapping the flood map. Exposure analysis study has been done on three major affected villages, considering three exposures as population, agricultural damage and infrastructure damage. The results revealed that before and after dam break, there is a difference of 18.84 km<SUP align="right">2</SUP> in the area of reservoir, and in downstream, there is increase in the inundated area of approximately 44.70 km<SUP align="right">2</SUP>. Approximately 10% of the population of Sanamxay District is affected and approximately 56 km roads, 600 buildings and 33 km<SUP align="right">2</SUP> cropland areas were exposed to the flood.

  • Flood stages assessment using open source 1D hydrodynamic modelling in
           data scarce region

      Abstract: Flood is disastrous for developing countries, its assessment is important for flood risk management. The present case describes the formation of a hydrodynamic model for flood mitigation studies. The 1D hydrodynamic model is generated for Sabarmati River from Chiloda Bridge to Vasana barrage. The 1D river geometry has been generated using Cartoset-1 DEM of 10 m resolution. The boundary condition for upstream and downstream has been fixed and the model is simulated under the unsteady flow conditions. As an outcome, the discharge, water surface elevation, velocity and flow area have been derived. Afterwards, the simulated flow and stages at the known section are compared with the observed data and show a significant correlation. The present case shows the application of HEC-RAS and HEC-GeoRAS open-source software in the prediction of river stages, hence applicable for flood mitigation and management in developing countries under a scarcity of data, fund and skilled human resources.

      Abstract: The study leads to the identification of drought situations and drought condition patterns observed. Rainfall data for the last 74 years was used as the study area. The statistical dispensation functions which include gamma function, exponential function, Weibull function, and lognormal function are primarily adapted and matched to data (precipitation) analysed for assorted time scales, based on which the suitable functions are chosen according to the situation. Time scale 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 (for all classes of drought) was analysed. These threshold values are important for the step-wise implementation while making decisions by taking the needful consideration for its response. Study results are helpful to find and forecast a level of preventive steps needed to plan to get rid of scarcity of water. As a result, relentlessness and frequency of utmost drought are identified. Therefore, relentlessness and frequency of utmost drought can be identified by using the proposed method.
