Conference information: A Symposium | Buffalo, New York, United States | August 1-5, 1994

Document Type: Book - Proceedings


This proceedings, Fundamentals and Advancements in Hydraulic Measurements and Experimentation, contains papers presented at the Symposium held in Buffalo, New York, August 2-4, 1994. The objective of the Symposium was to provide a forum for timely dissemination of information and for stimulating interaction among engineering and research professionals in the arena of hydraulic measurements and experimentation. Topics included in the proceedings are: 1) Typical problems associated with hydraulic measurements and instrumentation; 2) flow measurement; 3) scour instrumentation and sediment measurement; 4) sediment modeling and measurement techniques; 5) turbulence measurements and studies; 6) visual and optical techniques for sediment measurements; 7) ice measurement techniques; 8) air/water flow measurement techniques; 9) techniques in hydraulic measurements; 10) instruments for velocity measurements; 11) measurements at hydroelectric and pumping plants; and 12) experimental data collection techniques. These papers provide civil engineers working in the hydraulic specialty with guidance concerning the principles, limitations, and the application of measurements and experimental techniques in hydraulic engineering.
