Abstract

A numerical model is expected to become the primary tool in predicting the flow depth of
any flood event. Apart from simulating the flood flow, a solute transport model is found to
be an important aspect as it could spread by the flood flows. Due to development in computer
technology, a two-dimensional (2D) model has become popular in flow modeling and its
associated processes such as in solute transport. However, in certain cases of modelling the
flood event, the modeller would probably face difficulty in resolving the problematic river
flow in a 2D manner. Hence, a one-dimensional (1D) model with the ability to deal with
complex hydrodynamic flows is needed. This paper presents a 1D solute transport
numerical model development. The St. Venant equations for an open channel flow and the
advection-diffusion equation are used to simulate both shallow and contaminated flows
simultaneously. The model has been validated and the results obtained show a good
agreement when compared to the analytical solutions.
