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.

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.
