Jung, J.-S. and Cho, Y.-S., 2013. A 3D Hydrodynamic Model for Determination of Maximum Food Level inside Saemangeum Embankment

In this study, the variation of flood water level inside the Saemangeum Embankment is studied. In particular, the maximum flood level inside the Embankment is investigated for design of the land reclamation level. Water level inside the Embankment may be affected by flooding from connected rivers, tides and discharges through gates. The tidal range outside Embankment is about 6.0~7.5m. The water level is numerically simulated by using a commercial hydrodynamic model: Delft3D-Flow. By analyzing measured tidal data measured over 31 years (1981–2011), the smallest tidal difference is selected for simulations. The maximum flood level inside Embankment generally increases as the tidal difference decreases because the sea level outside Embankment is relatively high during the ebb tide.
