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.

Numerical investigation of thermal discharge to coastal areas using telemac-3d:a case study for south italy.
Author : MARIA GABRIELLA GAETA(1), ACHILLEAS G. SAMARAS(2) , RENATA ARCHETTI(3) & ALBERTO LAMBERTI(4)
investigates thermal discharge to coastal areas using TELEMAC-3D to simulate nearshore
hydrodynamics, both standalone and coupled with TOMAWAC in order to include the effect of wave-current interactions
as well. The study area is located in South Italy and comprises the vicinity of power plant at Cerano, near the city of
Brindisi. The effect of thermal discharge is investigated through distinct scenarios for a combination of (a) tidal and wave
conditions, (b) water temperature stratification in the coastal field, and (c) operational characteristics of the power plant
(in terms of water discharge / temperature at its outlet). The model results of this representative array of scenarios are
intercompared and evaluated on the basis of meeting basic standards of respective environmental regulations, providing
with useful insights on the numerical simulation of the phenomenon and the potential effects for the specific coastal
area.Form Required :
