The results of the project bring new lights to present design techniques and trends.
For example, for the design of stepped spillways, for the refurbishment of existing weirs and dams, with regards to reservoir siltation.
A joint collaboration is underway with Japan to compare systematically the characteristics of shallow water bays and estuaries.
Coastal engineering studies include the hydrodynamics of tidal bores, whirlpools and breaking waves.
Engineering History and Heritage Several studies are conducted in parallel to investigate the historical development of civil engineering and hydraulic structures.
Writing a research paper may seem challenging, even though it is a substantial part of everyday student life.
The presence of air within the flow increases the bulk of the flow, modifies the momentum shear layers and enhances the air-water gas transfer.
The project is based upon new experimental investigations using large-scale experiments : water jets discharging into the atmosphere, high-velocity open channel flows, hydraulic jumps and plunging water jets.
Air-water gas transfer across the bubble interface is predominant as the net surface area of thousands of entrained air bubbles is much greater than the area of the free-surface.
New experimental investigations have been conducted to simulate different mechanisms of wave breaking and air bubble entrainment.
