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.

Longitudinal dispersion coefficient based on theoretical equation for transverse distribution of stream-wise velocity in rivers
Author : KYONG OH BAEK(1)
When one-dimensional mass transport model is applied to predict the concentration variation of pollutants in open
channel, a dispersion coefficient which is one of the sensitive parameters should be selected appropriately. It is relatively
simple to find out a dispersion coefficient from the measured tracer data if available. However, for rivers where mixing
and dispersion characteristics are unknown, the dispersion coefficient may be estimated using empirical or theoretical
methodologies. For predicting pollutant behavior more precisely, theoretical derivation of the longitudinal dispersion
coefficient is needed
