Journal of Hydraulic Research | Vol. 59. Issue 4, 2021

The Journal of Hydraulic Research (JHR) publishes research papers in theoretical, experimental and computational hydraulics and fluid mechanics, relating to rivers, lakes, estuaries, coasts, constructed waterways, and some internal flows such as pipe flows. To reflect current trends in water research, articles that explore outcomes of interdisciplinary hydro-environment studies with a strong fluid mechanical component are especially welcome. Although preference is given to fundamental issues, papers focusing on important unconventional or emerging applications of broad interest are also appreciated.

Journal of Hydraulic Research | Vol. 59. Issue 4, 2021


This issue advances the state of the art of numerical modelling, large eddy simulation, large scale mixing, experimental methods, and defect detection. It contains an Open Access article entitled Modelling transverse solute mixing across a vegetation generated shear layer.

The annual Journal Citation Reports released in June show that the impact factor of the Journal of Hydraulic Research (JHR) increased to 2.568. IAHR would like to acknowledge the contributions of those authors who have decided to publish their research in JHR as well as the hard work of our reviewers and the entire editorial team.
