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.

Direct rainfall - verifying the technique across two states
Author : R. Swan and R.S.D.Thomson
The Direct Rainfall technique has become more prevalent in Australia in undertaking flooding and drainage studies. The technique applies rainfall directly to a 2D hydraulic model, rather than using traditional hydrological modelling techniques. The majority of the research on the method to date has come through engineering consultancies through practice. There has been limited published data on the technique, and in most cases, the published data focuses on individual case studies. This paper draws on investigations on catchments in New South Wales and Victoria where the Direct Rainfall methodology has been adopted. These catchments range in different topography, drainage characteristics and land-uses. It compares the methodology with traditional hydrological modelling techniques to test its suitability as an alternative.
