Fields of expertise

Hydraulic and hydro-mechanical analysis of hydraulic structures 
(steady or unsteady flows and transient phenomena, vibration 
and stability problems) 
Planning and design of hydroelectric and irrigation schemes 
Design of dams 
Planning and design of high head pressure conduits (penstocks, steel liners, shafts and tunnels, caverns) 
Supervision and interpretation of hydraulic model tests; numerical simulations of flow interaction with hydraulic structures 
Computer analysis and simulation of coupled mechanical-hydraulic problems, especially in the field of high head pressure conduits under consideration of seepage phenomena through concrete lining and rock. 
Planning and design of river flood protection measures; river hydraulics; flood forecast 
Reservoir sedimentation, physical processes including turbidity currents, technical measures for sediment removal and preventing turbidity currents 
Rock scour due to high velocity falling plunging jets downstream of spillways and bottom outlets 
River training and restauration works
Mitigation measures against hydropeaking downstream of dams; interaction of river morphology with aquatic biotopes
