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.

Numerical Simulation of Longshore Current and Radiation Sand Group Evolution in Coast of Jiangsu Province
Author : Yigang Wang, Xi Li and Suxiang Zhang
Longshore currents are mainly generated by wave breaking, and defined as the nearshore current inside the surf zone, the importance of longshore current is its effects on initiation and transport of sediment. The convention methods of studying longshore current by physical experiment and empirical w ave formulae were replaced by numerical model based on modified Boussinesq type wave equations to study the longshore currents and radiation sand group evolution of in coast of Jiangsu province. Directional spectrum wind wave was generated in pseudo three dimensional numerical wave basins to simulate the wave field with directional wind wave. Satellite map was used and compared with the numerical results. It is concluded the numerical model is of satisfactory accuracy and can be of engineering reference value in the design and planning of coastal structures and harbors.
