IAHR

International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research, a worldwide independent member-based association of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their pratical application.

Latin American Working Group

A small, independent and non profit scientific association launched in 2010 consisting of latin american academy researchers and specialists under the coordination of IAHR's Hydraulic Machines & Systems Commitee. LAWG/IAHR's executive secretariat is located in the city of Itajubá (state of Minas Gerais Brazil). LAWG/IAHR challenges being:

  • To improve discussions on common difficulties and obstacles.
  • To encourage partnerships between academy and industry of Latin American's hydraulic machines and systems area in research solutions.

Journal

The American Journal of Hydropower, Water and Environment Systems is a publication of Latin American Working Group of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research-IAHR.

Journal vol.1

For disclosure of Latin American group scientific production, we have launched with this edition the American Journal of Hydropower, Water and Environment Systems, and our goal being to fulfill existing gap for publications in Latin America. Thus, we hope to count on a much more expressive participation of researchers with the purpose to strengthen scientific initiation of American countries.

Journal vol.3

In this search for a common point that makes feasible the growth based on sustainable development, and taking into account the limitations imposed by nature itself, the American Journal of Hydropower, Water and Environmental Systems (AJHWE) aims to present papers that can effectively contribute to the development of new technologies.

Journal vol.4

The Latin American Working Group express its gratitude to everyone that has worked for this journal and do wish this journal will be soon recognized by scientific community of hydraulic machines and systems area.
Dear researcher: before submitting your paper to a journal abroad, please consider American Journal...

Journal vol.5

This edition addresses several subjects such as: the project and building of a small hydropower plant focusing to become a learning tool for teaching and training of engineering students; suitability of an existing reservoir to operate as a mini hydropower plant, according to regulatory environment of not centralized micro generation in Brazil; comparative studies of methodologies for hydraulics...

Journal vol.6

Demand for electricity is increasing rapidly in Latin America. Expanding and enhancing the current power generation infrastructure is thus a major concern for the region. In that context, renewable energy is bound to play a relevant role in the coming years and hydroelectric energy especially so in view of its relatively unexploited potential, which is estimated in around 690,000 MW in the region.

University Members

At present, the group has 17 university members.
