Dams & Reservoirs Journal Special Edition for Spetember 2019 - Your Help Required

The September 2019 issue will be a special edition covering the digital agenda, including CFD and automation. During the most recent BDS Conference in Swansea, a workshop was held to discuss CFD modelling and its application to the dams’ industry. The workshop gave an opportunity for a number of CFD practitioners to demonstrate the state of play and encouraged discussion on the challenges in application of this tool to the dams’ industry. The majority of the attendees were not CFD practitioners and it was highlighted that there has been a lack of guidance for specifying and reviewing CFD modelling. To fill this need, the facilitators of the workshop intend to work with the editorial team of the Journal to provide further guidance to dam engineers.  We intend to cover best practice workflows, specifying modelling work, expected outcomes and some general discussion. If you would like to provide input or would be keen to collaborate we’d be glad to hear from you. Please contact John Chesterton (, Mutlu Ucuncu ( or Dr Duncan Borman ( The Editor is also asking for further interesting articles and case studies to include in this special issue. If you would like to contribute, please contact the Editor. The deadline for all contributions to the special issue is the 30 April 2019.
