Abstract : The Corps of Engineers' Hydrologic Engineering Center is involved in the development, evaluation, and application of mathematical models. Two finite element hydrodynamic models, one for two-dimensional free surface flow in the horizontal plane and one for the vertical plane are being evaluated and applied. Although the models are formulated to solve dynamic flow problems, all work to date has been with steady state solutions. The objective of this research is to develop generalized mathematical models for routine use by the engineering community. This paper presents recent results of evaluation and application of the horizontal flow model.
