Abstract: Hydraulic structures continue to play a significant role in society’s diverse and challenging dependence on water. Hydraulic structures influence water conveyance, flood protection, energy production, and environmental and ecological impacts. The 7th IAHR International Symposium on Hydraulic Structures (ISHS2018) provided a venue for exchanging knowledge and discussing key issues related to hydraulic structure research, performance, operations, maintenance, and community implications. This symposium series maintains a rich tradition of exploring advancements in the maximizing the benefits of hydraulic structure elements while working to reduce the associated challenges. Presentations and discussions were held on advanced tools and analysis, applications and case studies, and novel approaches to developing and implementing more effective, environmentally sound, and robust solutions. The goal of these ISHS2018 proceedings is to provide applicable state-of-the-art knowledge for use in hydraulic structure analysis and design by the engineering profession.
