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.

Application of 3D Numerical Model in Bedload Transport and Bed Morphology of River Channel Confluence
Author : Zahra Zangeneh Sirdari, Aminuddin Ab. Ghani and Zorkeflee Abu Hasan
A three-dimensional numerical model was applied to study the bed morphology and bedload transport of the junction of Ara and Kurau rivers in Perak in Malaysia. SSIIM2 a 3D k-? turbulence CFD model with an adaptive, non-orthogonal and unstructured grid has been used for modeling the hydrodynamic of confluence. The numerical model was tested against field data from Ara-Kurau confluence. Satisfactory agreement was found between computed and measured bedload and bed elevation in the field. The study indicates that numerical models might become a useful tool for predicting the bedload transport rate and bed morphology changes in river confluences.
