Brief Introduction: A point of view on current trends, concerns, and needs related to hydraulic structures engineering and a forward-looking framework for more sustainable and resilient interactions with nature and between communities in water management.
Abstract: Hydraulic structures are critical for water management, but face evolving societal challenges and changing environmental conditions. In this context, hydraulic structures engineering needs to evolve. This talk presents the IAHR HSTC point of view on current trends, concerns, and needs related to hydraulic structures engineering as well as a forward-looking framework that is grounded on the evolution of interconnected research tools and methodologies in addition to emphasizing and bolstering strong links between academia and industry. It is anticipated that in this way the hydraulic structures community will make a new step toward more sustainable and resilient interactions with nature and between communities in water management.
Gregory Paxson | Informed Decisions and Communication for Dam Safety and Hydraulic Structures
Abstract: Dam safety decisions are critical to be able to manage our infrastructure wisely. This presentation will discuss recent advancements in prioritizing dam safety investments through risk assessment and also discuss opportunities to leverage benefits provided by dams to address dam safety risks.
