Annual Conference 2020: 7 & 8 September 2020 (to be confirmed)

Annual Conference 2020: 7 & 8 September 2020 (to be confirmed)

Normally we send out the invitation for the annual conference at this time. This year it is unfortunately a little different due to the Corona virus crisis. We are currently planning to hold the Annual Conference in Geneva on 7 and 8 September 2020. Unfortunately, we cannot estimate whether the Annual Conference will actually take place then and in the usual form. We would be pleased if you could reserve the provisional date anyway. We will inform you as soon as we know more details and send the final invitation. May 2020

#19 The extension of existing hydropower reservoirs substantially contributes to the Energy Strategy 2050

May 2020 - by Dr. David Felix and Prof. Dr. Robert Boes

With the implementation of the Energy Strategy 2050, the demand for seasonal storage of electricity increases. One option is to extend existing reservoirs of storage hydropower plants by heightening their dams.

#18 Scale matters – providing the missing validation of air-water flow research in hydraulic infrastructures

May 2020 - by Dr. Benjamin Hohermuth and Prof. Dr. Robert Boes

High-velocity air-water flows commonly occur in human-made hydraulic infrastructures such as spillways and low-level outlets at reservoir dams. Air entrainment significantly affects the flow properties of the resulting water-air-mixture and must be considered in the design of these safety-relevant structures.
