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 flow field characterization along a side weir in supercritical flow
Author : FRANCESCO GRANATA (1), RUDY GARGANO(2), SIMONE SANTOPIETRO(3) & GIOVANNI DE MARINIS(4)
Side weirs are hydraulic structures widely used in urban drainage, irrigation and flood protection for their capability to divert high flow rates. Although side weirs have been extensively studied in the technical literature for almost a century (De Marchi, 1934; Yen & Wenzel, 1970; El Khashab & Smith, 1976; Uyumaz & Muslu, 1985; Hager, 1994; Swamee et al., 1994; Castro-Orgaz & Hager, 2012), all the different available approaches to the matter (e.g. energy approach, momentum approach, purely empirical approaches) lead to imperfect solutions in various conditions.
