IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Comparison of bed load formulae in hydraulic geometry using similarity principle
Author : L. YILMAZ
Employing the similarity principle, this paper derives the bed load formulae. The formulae include relations for stream width, meander wave length, and bed slope, which are related to friction factor, bed load discharge, bed load diameter, and the water depth. On comparison using the data on the hydraulic geometry of several alluvial laboratory streams, the derived formulae are found to match well with those by Einstein (1950), Shields ( 1936), and Meyer-Peter and Muller model (1948).
