4th symposium on the hydrological modelling of the Meuse basin

The 4th symposium on the hydrological modelling of the Meuse basin will take place in Liege on Friday 13 October 2017. Attendance is free but registration by email is mandatory (Bernhard.Becker@deltares.nl). The program can be downloaded here.

Conférence du Prof. Dr. W. Hager "Laboratoires d'Hydraulique : Passé et futur"

Ce jeudi 11 mai, le HECE accueillait le Prof. Willi Hager (ETHZ, Suisse) pour une coférence intitulée "Laboratoire de Constructions Hydrauliques de l'Université de Liège: Passé et futur". Le premier Laboratoire d’Hydraulique à l’Université de Liège a été implanté sur le site du Val Benoit en 1937, il y a tout juste 80 ans.

A radically new approach to predict flow patterns in shallow reservoirs! [Open Access]

Take a look at this unique benchmark for improving urban flood models ...

Hydraulic models must also be validated against energy conservation properties!

Two recently published papers highlight the importance of validating hydraulic models not only in terms of water depth / flow velocity; but also against energy conservation properties.

Who we are ?

The research group HECE is part of the ArGEnCo Department (Architecture, Geology, Environment and Constructions) of the University of Liege.

It conducts research in the following fields:

Engineering Hydraulics Laboratory

Activity fields
  1. Studies on physical models of free surface and pressurized flows, considering sediments or air entrainment
  2. Hydraulic design and hydrodynamics analysis of structures (dams, locks, hydroelectric power plants...)
  3. Hydrodynamic studies of large hydraulic projects by means of coupled experimental-numerical approachs
  4. Making and operation of experimental facilities to perform research works in free surface and pressurized hydraulics
  5. Small or large scale physical models manufacturing
  6. Flowmeters calibration (propelers and electromagnetic probes)
