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.

Weir relocation for the improvement of the geum river scenery and river bed restoration
Author : Joo-Heon Lee , Sang-Man Jeong, Seok-Chae Park, Kwang-Seob Shin, Eun-Tae Lee
The present study concentrates on the estimation of a change of the water level and river-bed using an SMS system for the relocation of weirs as these have caused degradation to the riverside scenery and a serious interruption between the upstream and downstream areas of the Kongju gauging station on the Geum River, Korea. As a result of using an RMA2 and SED2D model in the SMS system in the present weir location, a large river bed difference and slope change between the upstream and downstream
areas of the weir were found. However, through simulation it was also shown that the river reach of the relocated weir, which is in the vicinity of GongSanSeong, reduces scour. This results in a gentle slope of the river bed and ensures an appropriate water level. Finally, it is expected that the scenery of the Geum River along GongSanSeong and the river bank will be improved by the increased flow.
