Quartet Honored for Paper Addressing Flow Structures

March 22, 2018

ASCE has honored Abul Basar M. Baki; Wenming Zhang; David Z. Zhu, M.ASCE; and Nallamuthu Rajaratnam, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE, with the 2018 Karl Emil Hilgard Hydraulic Prize for the paper “Flow Structures in the Vicinity of a Submerged Boulder within a Boulder Array,” Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, May 2017.

In this article, Baki and his coauthors connect fundamental research on flow deflection structures with improvements in the design of nature-like fish passes and river restoration projects (e.g., habitat restoration, enhancement, or replacement).

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.
