ASCE has honored the writing team of Yong G. Lai, Jianchun Victor Huang, and Kuowei Wu with the 2017 Karl Emil Hilgard Hydraulic Prize for their paper “Reservoir Turbidity Current Modeling with a Two-Dimensional Layer-Averaged Model,” in the Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, December 2015.

The authors provide a much-needed fundamental understanding of turbidity currents using direct numerical simulations.

The Karl Emil Hilgard Hydraulic Prize is presented to the author or authors of the paper that is judged to be of superior merit in dealing with a problem of flowing water, either in theory or in practice.
