Scour and Erosion : Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Scour and Erosion, Oxford, UK,
about this item
The 8th International Conference on Scour and Erosion (ICSE 2016) was organised by HR Wallingford under the guidance of the Technical Committee 213 for Scour and Erosion of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). This biennial conference draws together leading academics, scientists and engineers engaged in scour and erosion research to present and exchange their latest scientific findings. These proceedings, together with the eight previous proceedings dating from 2002, present a solid collection of technical and scientific developments in scour and erosion research which have been established over the last 14 years.
This book includes state-of-the-art papers in scour and erosion from ICSE 2016, covering the principal themes of: internal erosion, sediment transport, grain scale to continuum scale, advanced numerical modelling of scour and erosion, terrestrial scour and erosion, river and estuarine erosion including scour around structures, and management of scour/erosion and sediment, including hazard management and sedimentation in dams and reservoirs. The proceedings include four keynote lectures from world leading researchers cutting across the themes of scour and erosion, together with 132 peer-reviewed papers from 34 countries. This book is ideal for researchers and industry working at the forefront of scour and erosion, and has applications in both the freshwater and marine environments.
