Documenting Engineering Structures

Engineering is one of the key influences that shape our society, and among others, hydraulic engineering and structures are those that play a significant role in supporting human civilization in terms of flood control, irrigation, water supply, power generation, navigation, etc.  It is the dream of every hydraulic engineer and researcher to visit all the hydraulic structures in the world, to see and touch them and get to know them better,  but it is a pity that most of them will never have the chance to set foot near many of the world’s hydraulic projects.

This new IAHR collection of videos will allow you to visit some of the greatest hydraulics projects constructed around the world,  access their key numbers and structural details,  and explore them from both aerial and zoomed-in views complete with captions and figures.

The collection is a collaboration among the IAHR China Chapter, China Society for Hydropower Engineering (CSHE), and the IAHR Technical Committee on Hydraulic Structures, and is intended to be open to contributions from any individuals and organisations that are willing to share their documentation videos with the community. Please help us build up this collection and contact Ms. Sally Feng for contributions or assistance.

Enjoy the trip to the world’s hydraulic engineering structures.
