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.

Broad-crested weir operation upstream of a steep stepped spillway
New experiments were performed on a large-size stepped spillway facility. The operation of the broad-crested weir was
characterised together with the steep (1V:1H) stepped chute. The introduction of a small rounding at the crest¡¯s
downstream end was shown to prevent jet deflection. The hydraulics of the weir overflow was examined, and the results
showed critical flow conditions (i.e. minimum specific energy) along most portions of the crest, although the pressure
distributions were not always hydrostatic and the velocity profiles were not uniform. The stepped chute flow was highly
aerated. The two-phase flow in the stepped chute was characterised in details. The air-water flow properties were
analysed in terms of the rate of energy dissipation, showing 60% of energy dissipation rate down the first 12 steps..
