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.

The Numerical Simulation of Changes of Beach Profile and Mean Grain Size Caused by Tsunami Waves
Author : Jie Chen, Changbo Jiang, Bin Deng and Yuannan Long,
A 1D numerical model is reported that has the capability of modeling changes of beach profile and mean grain size caused by tsunami waves. The hydrodynamic model adopts highly nonlinear and weakly dispersive Boussinesq equations and couples the sediment transport and morphological evolution models. The combined model is validated using available laboratory experiments and could well resolve the tsunami wave propagate, runup and rundown on the beach, also could simulate scouring process and sorting of sand grains.
