Modèle réduit physique de la Rivière des Galets (La Réunion)
Scale model of the "rivière des Galets" (Réunion Island)
This model was designed in order to define with better guaranties various solutions of banking in of the river cone, considering hard natural conditions: 2% slope, 2400 m3/ s centennial flow, large bed load, transport of materials with a wide granulometric spreading out (from 50 μ to 1 m), taking into account the effect of materials extraction, and so on. Observations and storage on diskettes of experimental data which are of great interest with regard to the behaviour of alluvial torrential rivers with a large bed load, are the result of important and hight-quality means implemented on the model.
