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 spatial evolution of coherent motions in submerged rigid vegetation patch flow
A number of Large-eddy simulation studies on flow in a rectangular open channel blocked with an artificial submerged
rigid vegetation patch have focused on the effects of the coherent structures on momentum transfer across the
vegetation edge. The Finite Difference Method (FDM) with Fractional Area/Volume Obstacle Representation (FAVOR)
method and Volume of fluid (VOF) algorithm was used to solve the filtered Navier-Stokes equations on a Cartesian nonuniform
grid. The computed results compared well with experimental measurements. Computational results provided
insight into the spatial evolution of coherent structures and the monami phenomena, and coherent structures (vortices)
gave velocity time series a strong periodic signature. An intermittent low-speed streak, another characteristic of turbulent
boundary layer, also occurred at the vegetation edge, when partial vegetation is present.
