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.

Experimental study of the velocity and suspended solids distribution in wastewater system
Measuring flow-rate and pollutant discharges through sewer networks is required for legal, technical and management
reasons. This paper presents an experimental study in order to enhance knowledge on the total suspended solids and
velocity profiles in sewers, for assessing the representativeness of continuous measurements of water discharge and
pollutant loads discharged. The experimental site has been chosen to investigate the situation in both a uniform and a
complex situations, it is formed by the junction of two channels. The range of quantity (heights, velocities and so flow
rates) and quality (turbidity, conductivity, pH) parameters were determined using continuous monitoring. In the same time,
experimental campaigns have been conducted to question the existence of concentration gradients. First, the context of
this project is reported, second the experimental investigations are detailed and the results are presented and discussed.
