ASCE has honored the writing team of Ana Maria Ferreira da Silva, A.M.ASCE, and Mohsen Ebrahimi, EIT, A.M.ASCE, with the 2019 Karl Emil Hilgard Hydraulic Prize for the paper “Meandering Morphodynamics: Insights from Laboratory and Numerical Experiments and Beyond,” published in the September 2017 issue of the Journal of Hydraulic Engineering.

The authors’ paper offers an insightful understanding of meander formation and the role of secondary flows in the evolution of meanders. It is a good bridge between lab and numerical experimentation.

 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.
