The viewpoint of a river is changing as people regard the river as water-friendly space where they can enjoy and share the space beyond the simple purpose of flood control alongside the improving social level. The floating islands installation was planned featuring three islands. The river’s flow and channel stability could be changed when new structures are built in a river. Hence an analysis of the hydraulic characteristic changes should need. The hydraulic model experiment in this study sought to review the impacts of the floating islands installation on the safety of flood control and stability of river channel. This study analyzed the hydraulic features affecting the surrounding stability when installing floating islands and proposed stable floating islands layout in terms of hydraulics based on the experiment results.
