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.

Analysis of the behavior of solid discharges in the bifurcation of a river, case study
Author : Alejandro Leobardo, Gracia Jesús
An analysis of measurements of the water and sediment distribution at the bifurcation of a river for different discharges was made to explain the behavior patterns of the streams. From these patterns it was possible to calculate the input-output balance of sediments, predict the deposit of sediment and explain the ratio variations of liquid discharges. As a conclusion, the need of building banks along several kilometers, or carrying out an important dredging of the deposit material, was suggested.
