Abstract

Hydraulic structures are vital features in our water infrastructure, as they help meet the diverse and challenging demands of society, including conveyance, flood protection, environmental and ecological impacts, and systems management. Indeed, there are a number of challenges facing engineers today. This 6th IAHR International Symposium on Hydraulic Structures (ISHS2016) brought together domestic and international expertise from research, practice, and implementation in a forum for knowledge exchange and networking discussion on critical issues related to hydraulic structure research, performance, operations, maintenance, and community implications. It continued the rich tradition of this series by stimulating interest on advancement in the development and use of hydraulic structure elements and systems. Presentations and discussions were held on advanced tools, applications, and unique approaches needed to develop and implement more effective, environmentally sound, and robust solutions. It is believed that the proceedings of ISHS2016 provide applicable state-of-the-art expertise in hydraulic structure analysis and design to the engineering profession.
