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.

Three-dimensional computations of flow and morphology change in a curved open-channel
This study presents a three-dimensional numerical model that is capable of computing turbulent flow and morphological change in a curved stream. The Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equations were solved by the finite volume method with the non-staggered curvilinear grid. The standard k-ε model was used for the turbulence closure. The hybrid scheme and the SIMPLER algorithm (Patankar and Spalding, 1972) were used for differencing the convection and diffusion terms and velocity-pressure coupling, respectively. The momentum interpolation method proposed by Rhie and Chow (1983) was used to eliminate numerical oscillations, known as checkerboard, caused by the use of the non-staggered grid. The Engelund-Hansenís (1967) formula was used to estimate the bedload. The Exnerís equation was solved to account for the
morphology change.
