Aims & Scope
An important function of any large international organisation representing the research, educational and practical components of its wide and varied membership is to disseminate the best elements of its discipline through learned works, specialised research publications and timely reviews. IAHR is particularly well-served in this regard by its flagship journals and the extensive and wide body of substantive historical and reflective books that have been published through its auspices over the years. The IAHR Book Series is an initiative of IAHR, in partnership with CRC Press/Balkema-Taylor & Francis Group, aimed at presenting the state-of-the-art in themes relating to all areas of hydro-environment engineering and research.
The Book Series will assist researchers and professionals working in research and practice by bridging the knowledge gap and by improving knowledge transfer among groups involved in research, education and development. This Book Series includes Design Manuals and Monographs. The Design Manuals contain practical works, theory applied to practice based on multi-authors' work; the Monographs cover reference works, theoretical and state of the art works

Hydraulics of Levee Overtopping

Hydraulics of Levee Overtopping

1st Edition

By Lin Li, Farshad Amini, Yi Pan, Saiyu Yuan, Bora Cetin
October 02, 2020

Earthen levees are extensively used to protect the population and infrastructure from periodic floods and high water due to storm surges. The causes of failure of levees include overtopping, surface erosion, internal erosion, and slope instability. Overtopping may occur during periods of flooding ...

Turbulence in Open Channel Flows

Turbulence in Open Channel Flows

1st Edition

Edited By Hiroji Nakagawa, Iehisa Nezu
June 07, 1993

A review of open channel turbulence, focusing especially on certain features stemming from the presence of the free surface and the bed of a river. Part one presents the statistical theory of turbulence; Part two addresses the coherent structures in open-channel flows and boundary layers....

Fluvial Processes 2nd Edition

Fluvial Processes: 2nd Edition

1st Edition

By Ana Maria Ferreira da Silva, M. Selim Yalin
August 08, 2017

A stream flowing in alluvium deforms its bed surface, forming ripples, dunes, bars, etc., and, in many instances, it deforms its channel entirely, thereby creating meandering or braiding patterns. It could be said that, in general, an alluvial stream and its deformable boundary undergo a variety of...

Methods for the Quantitative Assessment of Channel Processes in Torrents (Steep Streams)

Methods for the Quantitative Assessment of Channel Processes in Torrents (Steep Streams)

1st Edition

By Dieter Rickenmann
March 24, 2016

An important part of the risk management of natural hazards in mountain regions concerns the hazard assessment and the planning of protection measures in steep headwater catchments, i.e. torrent control and slope stabilization. Torrent processes in steep channels have their rightful place among the...
