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.

EFFECTS OF TURBULENCE INTENSITY ON FRAZIL ICE PARTICLE CHARACTERISTICS
Author : Vincent McFarlane, Mark Loewen, and Faye Hicks
Obtaining accurate measurements of frazil ice particles in natural streams is a challenging task and consequently knowledge of the impact of various river characteristics on the development and growth of frazil ice particles is quite limited. One of these characteristics, the turbulence intensity, is highly variable from one location to the next and is believed to have a significant impact on the nucleation rate, growth, and flocculation of frazil crystals. A series of laboratory experiments were performed at three different turbulence intensities to study this hypothesis. Frazil ice particles produced at each of these turbulence intensities were photographed while
