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.

Use of Unstructured Grids for Flood Modeling of the Yellow River Downstream River Reach
Author : Mario Castro Gama, Ioana Popescu, Arthur Mynett and Li Shengyang
The present article presents the development of an inference model between the Yellow River reservoirs and the possible flooding downstream, given a set of hydrographs generated through the Monte Carlo method. Generation of hydrographs is done in two main locations on the river. Firstly a hydrograph is generated at Huayankou, where a hydrological station of great importance for the Yellow River is located. The station is upstream of the area prone to flooding. Secondly a hydrograph is generated at Gaocun station, which is located at the most downstream end of the river, just after the flooded area. A 2D model was used to simulate the process of flooding (using unstructured grids) and as a result a set of global variables of flooding were used in the analysis (e.g: maximum flooded area, time to maximum flooded area, maximum flooded volume and time to maximum flooded volume).
