Aim and Scope

Most fluid flows involve complex time- and space-dependent phenomena that are considerably facilitated by visualization. From the first drawings of Leonardo da Vinci to the state-of-the-art quantitative visualization tools of today, researchers have continued to use visualization for investigating flows.

The IAHR Media Library attempts to gather, in one place, didactic, scientific and technical multi-media visualization materials (photographs, movies, slide shows) of broad interest in the area of hydraulic engineering and research. The Library includes theoretical, experimental and computational multimedia materials relevant to hydraulics and fluid mechanics, within various fields of application (rivers, estuaries, coastal zones, environment, structures and industrial flows). The collection also includes information about water-related disciplines. The IAHR Media Library includes other relevant materials (lectures, simple simulation engines, etc) aiming to become the central IAHR educational resource.

This web site was launched by Prof. Michele Mossa of the Polytechnic University of Bari (Italy) with the initial support of Fondazione Caripuglia, Bari, Italy for the Research Project LIC-MON of 2003 and of the Project IMCA (Integrated Monitoring of Coastal Areas) financed by MIUR PON D.M. 593/00. Later, the initiative was supported with other Prof. Michele Mossa’s funds, most recently provided by the RITMARE Project.
