We tested a radically different approach to predict turbulent flow in reservoirs

Shallow reservoirs are often used in hydraulic engineering as sediment traps or storage basins.

Thermodynamic optimality principles applied in hydrology

Fully funded positions for 1 doctoral researcher, University of Liege, Belgium

The research group HECE of the University of Liege (ULg) offers one fully funded position for an outstanding doctoral researcher. The duration of the fellowship will be initially one year and it can be extended up to a maximum of 4 years to enable completion of the PhD.

The researcher will contribute to on-going research under one of the following topics:

Proceedings of the 5th IAHR International Junior Researcher and Engineer Workshop on Hydraulic Structures available open access!

 

The 5th IAHR International Junior Researcher and Engineer Workshop on Hydraulic Structures (IJREWHS 2014) was held in Spa (Belgium) last summer: http://www.hach.ulg.ac.be/cms/ijrewhs/home

The research group HECE has contributed to about 100 research and real-world engineering projects across Europe, Africa and Asia

For over 15 years, the research group HECE has contributed to about 100 research and real-world engineering projects across Europe, Africa and Asia, including large dams, hydropower plants, locks ... For most of them, a dedicated composite modelling approach was developed by coupling advanced numerical modelling of hydrodynamics and transport processes (model WOLF) with physical modelling in the 1,100 m² experimental laboratory of the group.

Three new publications on reservoir hydrodynamics

Reservoirs are engineering structures widely used in various fields, including urban drainage and hydraulic engineering. Their purpose is either to store water (e.g., for flood control) or to trap sediments (e.g., settling basins).

Predicting the amount of sediments which settle down in these reservoirs is a critical issue for their optimal design, sizing, operation and maintenance.

Fellowships for Outstanding Doctoral and Postdoctoral Researchers, partly funded under FP7 Marie Curie Action

The University of Liege (ULg) invites applications for incoming fellowships for outstanding doctoral and postdoctoral researchers.

The appointment must start between 1/10/2015 and 31/12/2015. The duration of the fellowships is 24 months for postdoctoral researchers and 48 months for PhD candidates.

Proposals are particularly welcome in one of the following topics, but the research project may also cover any other topic in the fields of hydrology, fluvial hydraulics or hydraulic engineering:
