Sample text

In rivers, of course, there may be several superimposed mechanisms of TKE production associated with multiscale bed forms. Altogether they represent SECONDARY FLOWS IN RIVERS: THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK, RECENT ADVANCES, AND CURRENT CHALLENGES different canals of energy transfer from the mean flow to turbulence (Nikora, 2008). In addition to these mechanisms, the helical secondary flows may introduce a potentially important external scale and associated instability that may modify conventional transport of energy from gravity to the mean flow to the depth-scale eddies and through the eddy cascade to heat.

Tennekes and Lumley, 1972). In time-averaged 2-D open-channel flow over a flat bed, the eddy cascade is assumed to start with generation of large eddies (2–5 flow depths H in length and 1–2 H in width), which then will cascade their energy down to the dissipative scale. In this scenario, there is only one external scale and associated energy supply to turbulence from the mean flow. In rivers, of course, there may be several superimposed mechanisms of TKE production associated with multiscale bed forms.

This issue in relation to secondary flows at river confluences has been comprehensively discussed in Rhoads and Kenworthy (1998, 1999) and Lane et al. (1999, 2000), with practical field examples in Parsons et al. (2007) and Szupiany et al. (2009), among others.. , Gessner, 1973; Townsend, 1976; Demuren and Rodi (1984); Bradshaw 1987; Ikeda and Parker (1989);Rodi, 1993; Yang, 2005; Ikeda and McEwan (2009). , Townsend, 1976). 1), when used alone, may lead to potential misinterpretation of the secondary flow mechanisms and thus should ideally be supplemented with other flow dynamics equations.
