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.

Turbulence characteristics in curvilinear cross section mobile bed channel
Author : Anurag Sharma (1), Mahesh Patel (2) & Bimlesh Kumar (3)
ABSTRACT
Experimental investigations have been done to analyze turbulent flow in curved sand bed mobile channel. Measures of
turbulent statistics were analyzed for its impending effect on sediment transport. The friction factor and Taylor micro
scale has been found to decrease with respect to depth. The lower value of von Karman constant has been found for
mobile bed channel. Third order statistics, which shows the skewness and diffusion behavior, has been also analyzed for
mobile bed channel. Analysis of bursting events shows that sweep and ejection are the main events for sediment
transport.
