Welcome to the 13th International Symposium on River
Sedimentation at the University of Stuttgart
Prof. Silke Wieprecht
Head of the Organisation
Committee for the ISRS 2016
The symposium aims at providing a
platform for scientists, engineers and
opinion leaders for an in-depth and
stimulating exchange of information.
The objectives are to develop sustainable revitalization and management strategies that address the
ongoing negative effects of anthropogenic activities whilst improving river
systems towards a healthy ecological
status. The fundamental research
and understanding of interactive processes between water and sediments
is as important as the sharing and
exchange of knowledge in applied
On behalf of the entire Local Organization Committee, we
would like to express
our delight of having
you here in Stuttgart
for the ISRS 2016. It
is our great pleasure to host the Symposium which is organized and established as a triennial event. Under the
auspices of UNESCO-IRTCES (International Research and Training Centre on Erosion and Sedimentation),
the ISRS symposia have been successfully held in Beijing, China (1980),
Nanjing, China (1983), Jackson, USA
(1986), Beijing, China (1989), Karlsruhe, Germany (1992), New Delhi, India (1995), Hong Kong, China (1998),
Cairo, Egypt (2001), Yichang, China
(2004), Moscow, Russia (2007), Stellenbosch, South-Africa (2010) and
Kyoto, Japan (2013). Since the foundation of the „World Association for
Sedimentation and Erosion Research”
(WASER) during the ninth symposium
in 2004, the ISRS serves as the official symposia series of WASER.
Sediment dynamics in fluvial systems
are worldwide of great ecological,
economic and human-health-related
significance. Appropriate management strategies are therefore needed
to limit maintenance costs and to minimize potential hazards on the
aquatic and adjacent environment.
Human intervention, ranging from
nutrient and pollutant release to physical modifications, has a large impact on sediment quantity and quality
and thus on river morphology as well
as on ecological functioning. Truly
understanding sediment dynamics
requires as consequence a multidisciplinary approach.
nation of science, research and application results in a productive and inspiring interaction.
The contributions presented at the
13th International Symposium on River Sedimentation (ISRS 2016,
Stuttgart, Germany, 19-22 September 2016) report recent accomplishments in the six main topics;
theoretical developments, numerical
modelling, experimental laboratory
work, field investigations and monitoring as well as management methodologies. In addition to the six
main topics we are proud to present
five special sessions. We are pleased that the Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute
(BAW) and the German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG) are committed in the special session on
Navigation and River Morphology.
Reservoir operators and hydropower
companies have shown great interest in the reservoir management
session, and the presented measurement techniques play an important
role for both in-situ and laboratory
Yours sincerely

Program at a Glance
Special Sessions
SS 1: Hydropower and Sediment Management
Reservoir sedimentation is one of the main challenges in dam engineering today.
As a result of the construction of artificial barrages flow velocities decrease and
sediments start to settle. These sediment depositions not only reduce the reservoir volume, but may also block bottom outlets and/or enter the intakes, which
results in abrasion of the turbine blades and in damages of hydraulic structures.
The special session “Hydropower and Sediment Management” deals with sedimentation problems in hydropower reservoirs and management strategies to
mitigate against sedimentation and to increase operation and lifetime of power
SS 2: Navigation and River Morphology
Safety and ease of shipping traffic is the first priority on waterways. Artificial waterways such as channels are easy to maintain whereas navigable rivers are under permanent influence of natural processes. In order to optimize the
hydraulic-morphological processes, certain measures have to be planned and
implemented. In this context, aspects of floodwaters, water supply management
and ecology for example have to be considered. Furthermore, the navigation
itself influences morphological processes. The special session “Navigation and
River Morphology” addresses the specific processes in waterways and gives the
opportunity to present various methods which are applied to investigate and predict the interactions of multiple influences, including short-term and long-term
morphological impacts.
SS 3: Innovative Measurement Techniques
Advanced measurement devices and techniques are important to determine sediment transport mechanisms and sedimentary processes in rivers and reservoirs. An accurate evaluation of these processes in high temporal and spatial
resolution is fundamental for understanding a fluvial system. This includes both
the quantification of suspended sediments and bed load transport as well as
morphological changes and morphologically relevant processes such as bed armouring, colmation and resuspension. The special session “Innovative Measure-
Program at a Glance
ment Techniques” has a particular focus on recent advances in the use of single
and combined measurement devices and techniques in open water environments.
SS 4: SEDITRANS – Sediment Transport in Fluvial, Estuarine and Coastal
SEDITRANS is a Multi-ITN (Multipartners Networks for Initial Training) under the
Marie Curie Actions of the 7th Framework Programme. The research theme is
sediment transport in the fluvial, estuarine and coastal environment
( This special session will accommodate
contributions that involve all scales of work pertaining to sediment and fluid mechanics. These include Lagrangian and Eulerian grain-scale approaches and
their upscaling to larger engineering scales, developed both experimentally and
numerically. Specific topics of interest include (but are not restricted to): mechanics of granular material, interaction between fluid flow and grain motion, suspended sediment, bed armoring, segregation and stratification, sediment budget
in rivers, estuaries and coastal reaches, morphology of singularities and local
scour, insights on bedload and suspended load transport formulae, derivation
and solution of conservation equations, and advances in numerical approaches
for sediment transport.
SS 5: Sustainable Land Management
The conversion of land for agricultural use is increasing rapidly. Therefore, the
development and implementation of practical solutions for global and regional
challenges regarding land use changes and the consumption of natural resources becomes more and more important. This special session deals with the
challenges of monocultures and land-use changes in monoculture dominated
areas as well as in arid areas with a high vulnerability. It has a special focus on
sediment loss due to monocultures, on sustainable land management based on
inter- and transdisciplinary approaches as well as on management strategies for
sustainable irrigation concepts and on sustainable utilization of natural ecosystems.

Keynote Speaker:
Bruce W. Melville, The University of Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)
Bruce W. Melville is Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Auckland. He is a founding member of the Centre for
Infrastructure Research and is Associate-Editor of the (ASCE)
Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, has served on local and international research committees, and has been a member of
many tribunals for water consent hearings. He received the
2002 ASCE Hydraulic Structures Medal, in recognition of his
contributions in the field and was elected to fellowship of the Royal Society of
New Zealand in 2006. In 2007, he received the R.J. Scott Medal from RSNZ for
his research contributions, followed by the Dobson Supreme Technical Award in
Transportation Infrastructure in 2012. In 2011, he was promoted to Distinguished
Fellowship of IPENZ and was awarded a Hood Travelling Fellowship.
In his keynote "Local scour at hydraulic structures", Prof. Melville will present recent research findings related to local scouring, where the relation between the
depth of local scour and its dependent parameters will be discussed. An emphasis is given to the underlying physics of local scour formation and the general
knowledge limitations of the processes. The keynote focuses on dependent parameters describing the flood flow and bed sediment characteristics, the geometry of the hydraulic structure and the rate of development of local scour.

The main emphasis of the University
of Stuttgart is on engineering and
natural sciences combined with
humanities and social sciences. This
interdisciplinary research creates a
prestigious profile for the university.
Its excellent position is reflected in
both its projects, sponsored by the
excellence initiative of the Federal
Government and the States, the excellence cluster „Simulation Technology” and the graduate school
„Advanced Manufacturing Engineering”. Furthermore, the University of
Stuttgart is currently supported with
four special research areas by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG

Dept. of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources
The department's particular strengths
involve both, fundamental and application-oriented research on topics
concerning sustainable water resources development.
One rather classical aspect deals
with design, construction, operation
and surveillance of dams. Physical
hydraulic models as well as analytical
approaches and structural numerical
FE-models are applied to assess the
reliability and safety of hydraulic
structures. In-depth examinations of
dams were carried out, containing hydrologic, hydraulic and stability analysis as well as risk analysis. Risk
assessment and risk management is
part of the department’s research.
Another focus is on flood protection,
an important feature in the management of river catchments. This includes planning as well as operating
protective dykes, reservoirs, and polders. Additionally, numerical 1D and
2D-simulations serve to predict in
high resolution the spatial and temporal distribution of a flood wave.
Transport processes of particles and
sediments have always been of particular interest in the management of
waterways ranging form sedimentation in reservoirs and harbours as opposed to erosion in recessed river
stretches. Although sediments are often associated with pollutants, they
are also vital to maintain ecological
health and functions of rivers. In the
department, we have a unique approach to account for the complexity
of the processes involved in bed
load/sediment dynamics that requires
more than one discipline: engineering
science is combined with biology,
chemistry and physics to complement
experimental work with numerical mo-
delling (1D, 2D, and 3D). Innovative
research is conducted on biostabilisation of fine sediments by microorganisms (bacteria, microalgae) as well
as on colmation of gravel beds by organic material.
Additional research is conducted in
using fuzzy approaches for habitat,
macrofauna, vegetation, and flood
plain modelling (e.g. CASiMiR). The
models are constantly developed to
obtain the best possible judgement on
habitat suitability for organisms that
are indicative for water quality. This
interdisciplinary approach ensures the
department produces cutting-edge

Stuttgart lies in a lush valley, nestling
between vineyards and thick woodland
on the River Neckar. With a population
of about 600,000, the capital of Baden-Wuerttemberg is the urban center
of south-west Germany.
The Stuttgart area has the reputation
of being the 'cradle of the automobile',
and visitors associate it primarily with
technological innovation and thriving
industry. This is mainly because of the
University of Stuttgart's most famous
graduate student: Gottlieb Daimler, the
inventor of the automobile.
However, the Stuttgart region is not
only the home of large car companies
and research organizations but has a
wealth of historic buildings ranging
from medieval castles and Baroque
palaces to magnificent royal residences and picturesque ruins. There
are no fewer than 19 mineral springs
that spout some 22 million liters of crystalline mineral water daily. Since some are attributed with healing
properties, there is a booming local
spa industry. With its impressive car
