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.

SPH Simulation of Flow over Vegetated Rough Bed with Submerged Cylindrical Rod
Author : Yin Xie, Songdong Shao and Soon Keat Tan
In this paper, an incompressible Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (ISPH) model is used to simulate the open channel uniform flow over a vegetated rough bed made of submerged vertical cylindrical rods. The SPH technique is a pure Lagrangian modelling approach that used the individual particles to track the flows without a mesh. The incompressibility of the ISPH model is realized by keeping the density of fluid particles to be constant throughout the computations. A two-step solution method is used to solve the ISPH equations and a pressure Poisson equation is used to obtain the fluid pressures. The existence of the cylindrical rods on the channel bed is modelled by adding an additional drag force term into the fundamental hydrodynamic equations. The inflow and outflow boundaries are treated by inserting and removing the fluid particles at the upstream and downstream ends of the computational domain. The ISPH computed velocity profiles in the channel flume have been compared with the PIV measurement data and a good agreement has been found. The results indicated that the ISPH model could provide a promising tool to model similar rough bed flows in a laboratory scale.
