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.

One-way Coupled Fluid Structure Interaction Analysis of Shallow Hydropeaking Wave Propagation in a Partially Ice-covered River Channel
Author : Liu, Ning, Jim Kells, and Karl-Erich Lindenschmidt
In northern regions, hydropeaking operations in winter may lead to the undesirable consequence of ice cover fracture through incoming waves, leading to subsequent ice jam flooding. In order to understand the fracture mechanics of ice covers, numerical simulations based on the coupling of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and structural mechanics were developed to study the fluid-solid interaction (FSI) of the water-ice configuration subjected to shallow water wave propagation. This paper describes the model setup and gives a qualitative demonstration through a case study (proof-of-concept). It is the preliminary stage of the ongoing effort to simulate ice breakup patterns in response to shallow hydropeaking waves.
