Assessment of water resource allocation policies based on the principle of comparative advantage and a policy analysis matrix: A case study of Hamedan-Bahar Plain

Comparative advantages of agricultural products were evaluated using the policy analysis matrix (PAM), to determine the combination of products according to market and shadow prices. Based on these evaluations, maximum amount for import virtual water was identified. Results showed that optimum cropping pattern in term of maximizing social benefits not only had the highest amount of benefits - 29160 USD but it also...

Effect of groin geometry on scouring of sandy river beds having 180° Bend

Groins are commonly used at the river bends for controlling erosion along the banks and protecting the adjacent infrastructure. Groins are designed to divert river flows towards its axis, thus reducing stream pressures leading to enhanced protection of river banks. The new flow pattern, however, entails the inherent risk of disturbing the established river regime leading to scouring around the groin. This research was...
