‘River Morphodynamics’ Takes Place in Delft

The Workshop on Modelling Mixed-Sediment, River Morphodynamics, will take place from May 27-29, 2015, in Delft, the Netherlands.

“In the workshop we will discuss topics that deal with modelling mixed-sediment fluvial processes, covering a wide range of scales. In setting up the workshop program we have focused on enhancing discussion. To this end we have scheduled a limited number of presentations and plenty time for discussion and poster sessions,” the organizers said.

“We will conduct a/some joint laboratory experiment(s) that will be led by graduate students and postdocs. The focus of the laboratory experiment(s) will be discussed before the workshop.”

Workshop topics:

– Sediment supply to the river system (through surface run-off, landslides, bank erosion, tributaries, bed degradation);

– Bedrock incision and mixed-sediment processes;

– Downstream fining, river profile concavity and gravel-sand transition;

– Particle abrasion;

– Granular physics and sorting;

– Bend sorting, mobile and static armor, bedform sorting and their relation to river morphodynamics;

– Grainsize-selective and partial transport, hiding and equal mobility;

– Advances in measurement techniques of mixed-sediment processes (lab & field);

– Advances in mathematical modelling of mixed-sediment morphodynamics;

– Ecological implications of sorting;

– Sorting in channel-floodplain complexes;

– River measures dealing with mixed-sediment issues (e.g. sediment augmentation and dredging).

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
