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.

Assessment of morphological properties of a braided river predicted by a process-based model
Author : H.Y. Yang 1, B.L. Lin 2 and J.J. Zhou 2
A numerical model based on the basic physical laws of hydraulics and sediment transport and some empirical formulae is used to simulate the suspended sediment transport and river channel evolution processes. The model has been set-up for initially a rectangular flat bed channel. Gradually, a braided river is developed, with channel nodes and geomorphology units common in natural braided rivers such as Y-shaped junction and pool-bar unit. Braiding evolution and mechanisms are analysed, and some key river processes produced by the model appear to be similar to those found in natural braided rivers.
