Qui sommes-nous?

Le groupe de recherche HECE, anciennement HACH, fait partie du Département ArGEnCo (Architecture, Géologie, Environnement et Constructions) de l'Université de Liège.

Il est actif dans les domaines suivants :

Laboratoire d'Hydraulique des Constructions

Domaines d'activité
  1. Etudes sur modèle physique d'écoulements à surface libre ou en charge avec prise en compte d'effets sédimentaires ou d'entrainement d'air
  2. Design hydraulique et analyse hydrodynamique des structures du génie civil
    (barrages, écluses, centrales hydroélectriques...)
  3. Etudes hydrodynamiques de grands aménagements par approche couplée expérimental-numérique
  4. Mise au point et exploitation d'installations expérimentales pour la réalisation de travaux de
    recherche en hydraulique de surface et sous-pression
  5. Réalisation de modèles physiques à grande ou petite échelle
  6. Etalonnage de moulinets (à hélice et électromagnétiques)
     

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

Dr Martijn Westhoff has been a post-doctoral researcher in the group HECE for over one year, working on 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.
