IAHR Journal of Hydraulic ResearchThe IAHR Journal of Hydraulic Research (JHR) contains scientific and technical material of broader interest in the areas of theoretical, experimental and computational hydraulics and fluid mechanics in various fields of application (rivers, coasts, environment, structures and industrial flows). This may also include results of field studies and interdisciplinary studies. Further included is publication of state-of-the-art papers, information which is suitable for the end-user (design and consultancy) and forum articles. Discussions to papers and technical notes are welcomed. The scope of the Journal covers the fields in which IAHR is active.
