Gulf of Khambhat Development Project involves construction of a dam across the Gulf
to create a fresh water reservoir in the upstream regions by storing the waters
from the rivers Narmada, Mahi, Sabarmati and Dhadar. This requires modeling of the
reservoir, its river inputs and water release scenarios. Modeling is also required
to study the characteristics of the reservoir once the dam is built, like inundation,
mixing of sediments and pollutants which are brought by rivers, stratification characteristics,
flushing of sediments and salt water etc which will help in locating the spillways
and gates. While this proposal will focus on the modeling requirements for engineering
design purposes, some of the issues (like pollutant dispersion, flushing of sediment,
etc) will be addressed in the subsequent proposals.
The modeling of gulf is also required to study the various effects on hydrodynamics
and sedimentation downstream of the gulf due to the implementation of the project.
These include: the estimation of current speeds in the dam alignment during the
construction of the dam and changes in water levels, currents and sedimentation
downstream side of the dam.
This proposal includes modeling of the gulf and the oceanography measurements for
the mathematical modeling components.
