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 Strategy for the Interaction between Hydraulic and Numerical Models
Author : Angel N. Menendez, Nicolas D. Badano and Emilio A. Lecertua
A strategy for the design of hydraulic structures isproposed, consisting in a first stage where the flow in the physical model is numerically simulatedin order to validate the numerical model, and in a second stage where the flow in the prototype is numerically simulated in order to extrapolate the results to this scale.This is illustrated for two problems with quite different levels of complexity, associated to the design of the Third Set of Locks of the Panama Canal: the determination of the time for water level equalization between chambers, and the calculation of the amplitude of free surface oscillations in the lock chambers.
