A method is presented for calculating water motions in riverine systems consisting of both flood plain areas and channels. The governing hydrodynamic relations are used in which the motions in channels are simulated in two horizontal dimensions. Provisions are made in the solution scheme to couple the one-dimensional channel flows with the two-dimensional flood flows - thus allowing the two flow regions to communicate with each other. Channels are taken such that they are embedded in the two-dimensional network.
