The present paper tries to describe the advantage and improvement of a numerical model when predicting government processes on Flow Rivers. With regard to the important effect of the flow velocity and shear stress forces on river bank erosion, we apply a Two-Dimensional numerical model, named CCHE2D, to simulate river flow pattern at a meandering river Khoshk-e-Rud River of Farsan, 30 Km west of Shahr-e- Kord. Various algorithms and parameters were implemented in a computational fluid dynamic model (CFD) for simulation of two-dimensional (2D) water flow to gain an insight into the capabilities of the numerical model. At this surveying, at first, we applied the topographic maps of the studied location and then, made the model geometry and calculation mesh with diverse dimensions. Finally, using the measured properties of the river flow and the Depth-Average, Two-Dimensional Hydrodynamic Model was run. Then, we obtained the results of model, such as depth and flow velocity at the river meander. Within the scope of the test cases, the model simulated water flow pattern processes at an intake, as well as a steady flow regime in a sine-shaped meandering channel by a 90_channel bend, which is the free-forming meander evolution of an initially straight channel. Because of high accuracy of this numerical model and multiple content of its internal parameters, the evaluation result of model, confirmed the measurement results. Therefore, the parameters gained from the model showed good conformity with measurement parameters at field cross-section. All results matched well with the measurements. The results also showed that using computational fluid dynamics for modeling water flow is one step closer to having a universal predictor for processes in Meandering Rivers
