Abstract

A review and recalculation of the convergence properties for a simplified form of the St. Venant Equations. A solution procedure which completely linearizes the implicit coefficient matrix about some reference depth and discharge. The validity of this approach is discussed. A problem-oriented-language input developed is suitable for river-basin simulation and implemented on a time sharing system. The verification of the unit influence function method of solution for any generalized network of channels is studied. Results are applied to field data based on complex multi-looped channel networks. 9 rfs.
