About the archive

In 2012 we lost Jean Jacques Peters, former engineer of Flanders Hydraulics Research (1964 till 1979) and international expert in sediment transport, river hydraulics and morphology. As a tribute to him we have created potamology, a virtual memorial archive whose aim is to preserve and disseminate his way of thinking and his morphological approach to river problems all over the world.
This archive provides four modules, each with its specific information set relevant to Peters’ work. Where available and if not confidential, there will also be access to the full text. In dialogue with Peters’ family we continue to make his life’s work accessible.

    Water flows are reaerated to a variable extent at hydraulic structures, depending on the discharge mode.

    After introducing the existing numerical models for quantifying aeration in the axis of both overflow and bottom flow, the authors examine the theoretical modelling of a combined flow which has only seldom been studied in hydraulics or in reaeration.

    Tests on a physical model showed the great importance of the flow-stream structure on oxygen transfer.

    The reaeration efficiency of a combined flow is defined by two formulas simulating both the overflow and the combined flow.

    This study aims mainly at pointing out the consequences of an optimum dam management on the quality of surface waters.
