Description

We have invesitgated the 3D flow field in very large sharp bends of Middle Yangtze River (MYR) based on field measurements. We found that patterns of mean and secondary flows in sharp bends on MYR are similar as in smaller systems, and the reduced-order model of Blanckaert & de Vriend (2003, 2010) can resolve the flow field in river of this size, and thus this mode has been validated over the entire range of scales. The data here show the ADCP measured 3D velocities (X,Y,Z) at ten transects of the sharp bends of TG and ZZZ in the MYR.
