Aims and Scope

Journal of Hydraulic Structures is an interdisciplinary journal which publishes high-quality peer-reviewed articles addressing the latest developments and applied methods in construction, maintenance, management, and operation policy of Hydraulic Structures. 

The Journal aims at providing an efficient route to fast-track publication, within 10-12 weeks after manuscript submission. Manuscripts will be considered for publication in the following categories: research articlestechnical notescase reports and review articles

The general areas covered by the Journal include:

  • Technical and methodological advances in application, design/selection, production, modification of construction materials
  • Advances in numerical and analytical methods
  • Hydro informatics and soft computing
  • Hydraulic aspects of hydraulic structures
  • Applied surface and subsurface hydrology and hydrometeorology
  • Forecasting approaches in water resources engineering
  • Economic and social aspects of hydraulic structures
  • Uncertainty analysis and risk management in hydraulics and water resources engineering
  • Application of Nanotechnology in Hydraulic Structures
  • Geotechnics of Hydraulic Structures
  • Damage detection techniques

The following are considered as hydraulic structures:

  • Dams and associated structures
  • River and Watershed Structures
  • Offshore and Onshore Structures
  • Irrigation and Drainage Channel Networks
  • Bridges
  • Water Storage and Conveyance Structures
  • Pipelines and Pump Stations
  • Sewerage Systems
  • Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants
  • Historical Water Structures
