Análisis Numérico de Flujo Cinemático en Cuencas Fluviales

Walter E. Legnani


In this work the kinematic routing model was applied to simulate the one-dimensional unsteady flow in fluvial basins 0 channel reaches with an arborescent structure. Using the Muskingum and Godunov finite difference schemes the equation that governs the system, wrines as nonlinear conservation law, was numerically solved. The model was calibrated fot the network consisting in the Ludueiia brook, in the Great Rosario basins, and the Ibarlucea channel as a tributary .
Moreover, the region of stability for the spatial ponderation of the Muskingum scheme parameter was studied, because a nonlinear formula relating wave velocity and the discharge was applied.
