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.

Modeling of Erosion Funnel in the Front of Dam Based on SPH
Author : Aiguo Qian, Yingwei Wang, Chao Cai and Rui Gao
The interaction process of water and sediment is studied using SPH. The method modeling the sediment particles is the same as modeling fluid particles. The fluid force is converted to the force between fluid and sand particles considering the density of sand when the interaction between fluid particles and sand particles is calculated. The movement of sediment on the sandy bed at the downstream of dam-break is modeled firstly, and the free surface and distribution of sediment at different time are depicted. Some complicated physical process such as the starting, transport of sediment, and fluid mixing are analyzed. The model is then used to model the deltaic sedimentation morphology and erosion funnel in the front of dam in a typical reservoir. The result is in accord with practical physical phenomena. It is showed that SPH is extremely applicable in modeling the interaction between water and sediment.
