Abstract

This paper examines a variety of recirculation flow patterns that develop in the groyne fields on rivers. Flume experiments at Delft University of Technology and field measurements were performed on the Elbe River in Germany, using innovative particle tracking and acoustic Doppler velocimetry. The analysis focuses on patterns of velocity, scour and deposition, and corresponding change of riverbed morphology. The results show that velocity patterns in the groyne fields depend mainly on the aspect ratio between groyne length and length of groyne field. The spatial distribution of fine-sediment deposition between the groynes coincides with the location of gyres
