Forty-three papers are contained in these proceedings, from the International Symposium on Model-Prototype Correlation of Hydraulic Structures. The papers cover a broad range of subjects related to model-prototype correlation of hydraulic structures. The main session titles are: aeration in jets, spillway aeration, fluid mixing, pressure fluctuations, physical models of river structures, stilling basin pressure fluctuations, physical modeling techniques, vibration of mechanical equipment, cavitation, hydraulic measurements and instrumentation, and modeling hydraulic structures. The objective of the symposium was to convene an international group of engineers and researchers to address whether the prototype acts as the model predicted. The symposium was held jointly wwith the ASCE National Conference on Hydraulic Engineering at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, August 9-11, 1988. It was cosponsored by the Hydraulic Structures Committee, ASCE Hydraulics Division, and the Experimental Methods and Physical Modeling Section, IAHR Methods in Hydraulics Division.
