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.

Ice Transport and Jamming in Channel Bends
Author : Huang, Fengbin, Hung Tao Shen, and Chao Li
In this paper, a two-dimensional numerical model study on the dynamics of ice transport and jamming in curved channel is presented. A numerical model is developed and used to simulate ice transport in an idealized channel bend to demonstrate the process and factors affecting jam development. The model is then applied to simulate the freeze up jams in a meandering reach of the Upper Yellow River in Inner Mongolia, China. The simulated result compares well with the satellite images and field observation.
