Discussion of "Three-dimensional numerical study of flow structure in channel confluences"

The Discussers would like to congratulate the Authors for their interesting work concerning the flow characteristics in channel confluences, performed by means of three-dimensional numerical simulations considering rectangular crosssections with smooth bed. The model is validated with reasonable agreement with experimental data. The investigation of several geometries (angles and channels widths) and hydraulic conditions (discharge ratios and Froude Numbers) contributes to increase the knowledge on the hydrodynamics in channel confluences.
