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.

A numerical model to compute the morphodynamic impact of a human intervention
Author : GIOVANNA VITTORI(1), FENGYAN SHI (2) & JAMES T. KIRBY (3)
tion, a method, named ¡§concurrent correction method¡¨ (CCM) is described which uses the parallel
computing technique and evaluates only the morphological impact of a human intervention, assuming that the
hydrodynamics and morphodynamics are in equilibrium before the intervention. The morphological evolution is computed
based on the change of the sediment flux induced by the human intervention. The advantage of the CCM model is that it
can avoid the computational demanding spin-up period, usually employed in numerical modeling, to reach equilibrium
conditions.Form Required :
