Ippen Lecture: Hydraulic structures engineering and research: why and where to?
Water management is at the heart of the development of human societies. Demographic growth, climate change, environmental issues and aging infrastructures are amongst the factors that require the adaptation and development of hydraulic structures. With sustainability as target, the presentation shows why hydraulic structures engineering and research are at the forefront and in which directions they should be developed.
