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.

Wave growth at short fetches
Author : J. MORRIS(1), C. GAUTIER (1) & G.PH. VAN VLEDDER (2)
For short-fetch areas (typically 500-5000m), such as lakes and wide rivers, the performance of SWAN (Booij et al., 1999) is poorer than for longer fetches. Deltares (2013) showed an under prediction of wave height (order of 15%) for short fetches at Lake IJssel (etherlands). This inconsistency in growth behavior suggests a shortcoming in the parameterizations of the physical processes responsible for wave evolution or in the calibration of SWAN. To increase the accuracy of SWAN model results, we investigated the parameters controlling wave growth at short fetches.
