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.

Modeling sediment transport in turbulent open channel flows
Author : Jungsun Oh1, and Sung-Uk Choi2
The most commonly used method of simulating flows and transport of other phases in a flow is averaged equations for conservation of mass, momentum, and energy for each phase, and a set of equations for the transfer of mass, momentum, and energy between phases. The method provides quite reasonable results on the average trend of flow and sediment transport. However, the method is not sufficient to perform analysis of sediment dynamics. Sediment particles are the discrete phase that can exchange mass, momentum and energy with the fluid phase (Capecelatro and Desjardins, 2013). In this study, therefore, we adopt a hybrid approach to modeling sediment transport so that we can analyze the detailed patterns of sediment particles in open channel flows.
