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.

Numerical simulation of roll waves using shallow water equations with consideration of boussinesq¡¯s coefficient
Roll waves have been studied experimentally and theoretically to clarify their hydraulic characteristics, especially wave
profiles. According to Dressler (1949) mathematical theory, which is derived from shallow water equations by assuming
that Boussinesq¡¯s coefficient is 1.0, the wave profiles are determined by discharge, channel slope and wave celerity.
Later, Iwagaki & Iwasa (1955) extended this theory to deal with both turbulence and laminar water flows by Boussinesq¡¯s
coefficient equal to 1.05-1.2. However, using this extended theory, wave profiles are uniquely determined without relation
to wave celerity. In this study, the derivation of the theory is reviewed and compared with Dressler¡¯s theory, in order to
understand the origin of this difference from Dressler¡¯s theory. The comparison of Dressler¡¯s theory shows that the wave
profiles presented by Iwagaki & Iwasa¡¯s theory can be obtained under the limited situation. Numerical simulation of roll
waves are also conducted. Finally, it is found that wave profiles are not unique and these roll waves have various
wavelength and wave height in numerical results regardless of Boussinesq¡¯s coefficient.
