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.

ABSTRACT
The paper presents the application of a composite hydraulic modeling approach to the rehabilitation studies of a complex dam spillway. First, a physical scale model of the existing works has been built and operated. It enabled to define very accurately the actual discharge capacity and to validate a numerical model of the system. Second, the numerical model has been used to rapidly test several rehabilitation solutions. Finally, the final design has been validated and optimized using the physical model. The paper shows how composite hydraulic modeling enables to combine the inherent advantages of physical and numerical modeling approaches, which are complementary, while being beneficial to the delay as well as the quality of the analysis.
