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.

EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF FLOW UNDER 3-D BREAKING WAVES OVER A SMOOTH BEACH
Author : K.A. GALANI & A.A. DIMAS
Wave tank measurements of three-dimensional wave breaking on a 1/15 sloping beach for incoming regular waves were performed using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Acoustic Doppler Velocimetry (ADV). Two cases of incoming regular waves were tested with a wave period of 1.5 s, which corresponds to a wavelength of 3.51 m at deep water, and wave heights of H=0.08 m and H=0.10 m. The three-dimensionality of wave breaking was initiated by the diffraction of the incoming waves on a part of the beach narrower than the wave tank. Free surface elevations were also measured at several locations along the beach centerline. In the surf zone, the free surface elevation timeseries resembles the typical
