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.

Depth-averaged Flow Modeling in Curvilinear Coordinates
Author : Fr‚d‚ric Stilmant, Raphael Egan, Pierre Archambeau, Benjamin Dewals, S‚bastien Erpicum and Michel Pirotton
A set of depth-averaged equations in curvilinear coordinates is presented. This extension of the standard shallow water equations to curved flows and to jet flows leads to a model which is very versatile. Its applicability and precision is assessed by the computation of a discharge coefficient and the nappe profiles for a sharp crested weir. Results confirm the relevance of the approach. Even if not taken into consideration in the set of equations presented here, a discussion shows that head losses could be included in the model so as to extend its application field to many civil and environmental engineering applications.
