2024 National Hydraulic Engineering Conference

August 27 - August 30

The conference will be hosted by the Mississippi Department of Transportation at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, MS from August 27th to 30th, 2024. The conference is supported by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Technical Committee on Hydrology and Hydraulics, Transportation Research Board (TRB) Committee AKD50 (Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Stormwater), and the Federal Highway Administration.

The theme of the eleventh national conference is “Riding the Waves of Innovation: Sustainable Solutions in Hydraulic Engineering for a Dynamic Future.” We are seeking presentations that reflect the theme and describe research and innovations addressing the challenges transportation agencies face constructing, maintaining, sustaining, and improving hydraulic structures in the present and future physical, natural, social, and economic environments. Potential presentation topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Flood Mitigation and Resilience
  • Climate Change
  • Hydrology and Hydrologic Modeling
  • Hydraulic Modeling
  • Scour and Bridge Hydraulics
  • Stream Stability and Countermeasures
  • Fluvial Geomorphology and Sediment Transport
  • Culvert Hydraulics
  • Aquatic Organism Passage
  • Stormwater Design and Management
  • Stormwater Quality
  • Coastal Engineering

Abstracts can be submitted at: https://mdot.ms.gov/NHEC/form-frame.htm.

Abstracts are due by March 29, 2024. Presentations will generally be 25 minutes in length, including 5 minutes for questions and answers.
