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 on interaction between vortices and floating breakwater
Author : J. Yoon , D. Namgung , Y.-S. Cho
In this study, laboratory experiments are conducted to investigate flow fields around floating breakwaters by using the LDV (Laser Doppler Velocimetry) system. The LDV system is a well known equipment to measure fluid particle velocities in laboratory experiments. Although the system requires great efforts and enormous time for measurements, it can provide precise velocity fields comparing to other available equipments. Various types of drafts and shapes for breakwaters are employed in laboratory experiments to analyze a relation between flow-fields and vortex. A series of numerical experiments are also carried out by using a two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations model. Numerically predicted results are compared with experimental measurements.
