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.

Secondary circulation motion in the apex section of a large amplitude meandering flume
Author : Donatella Termini, Mafalda Piraino
Flow characteristics in a large amplitude meandering flume with deformed bed have been experimentally investigated. In this work, some peculiar results obtained at the apex section of the flume are reported. Particular attention is devoted to turbulent characteristics of flow and to the Reynolds stresses distribution. In accordance with previous findings, two counterrotating secondary circulation cells have been found in the examined section: the centralregion cell and the outer-bank cell. The outer-bank cell strongly affects the turbulent activity and the distribution of the Reynolds stresses near the bank.
