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.

Composite modeling of hydraulic structures
Author : BRYAN J. HEINER (1), STEVEN L. BARFUSS (2)
l modeling has been the proven standard for modeling hydraulic structures for decades, it comes with
limitations and constraints. Similarly, numerical modeling also carries with it a number of limitations and constraints as well
as benefits not found in physical modeling. However, when the two modeling techniques are used together during a
hydraulic study, many of the limitations of one technique can be complemented by the other and vice versa. Accordingly,
when researchers understand the benefits and limitations of each modeling technique, they can develop a research plan
that utilizes composite modeling approaches where both modeling techniques are used together to increase the efficiency
and effectiveness of the modeling process. Currently, the trend in hydraulic modeling is to utilize the benefits of both for
design. This paper describes the specific benefits of composite modeling using several case studies as examples, and
describes how the use of both methods can result in a better product more quickly.Form Required :
