Human impacts strongly altered the sediment regimes of rivers. This research will focus on the assessment of different engineering measures to improve sediment continuity in river systems, thus to improve the habitat conditions, navigability and other relevant water utilization areas. The research will built on a thorough literature research about national and international good examples, furthermore, CFD modeling based simulations will be performed for selected study sites, to assess the functioning and efficiency of different measure types, such as reconstruction of regulation structures, side-arm reconnection, intelligent dredging and so on.
