Studies - Physical and numerical modelling of water flows in hydraulic structures
Hydraulic physical model studies are carried out with the main intent of analyzing general hydraulic operation conditions and characterizing the hydrodynamic actions on solid boundaries of spillways, outlets, water intakes and hydraulic circuits. Normally, by means of physical model studies it is possible to improve the geometry of the structures and achieve improved hydraulic performance or a similar performance but less costly solutions.
