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.

Three-dimensional numerical analysis for predicting the behavior of water temperature and turbidity in a pumped storage reservoir
Author : Nozomu Yoneyama, Motoyuki Inoue and Nobukazu Tanaka
The purpose of this report to present and verify a prediction method developed to analyze the behavior of water temperature and turbidity in a pumped storage reservoir. The features of this method are: (1) to analyze the density current by applying a numerical method for an incompressible flow with density variation, (2) to calculate the fluid density stratification by using the k-ε turbulent model, and (3)to apply the method to a flow involving a free surface using the VOF method. The prediction method is applied to local measurements in the Shin-Takase pumped storage reservoir. The obtained numerical solutions of the water temperature and turbidity distributions agree well with the measurement results.
