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 including dams and reservoirs; hydropower design under uncertainty
  • High speed flows on spillways and in bottom outlets; effects of aeration and cavitation; formation of shock waves; pressure fluctuations
  • Planning and design of high head pressure conduits (penstocks, steel liners, shafts and tunnels, caverns)
  • Supervision and interpretation of geotechnical site investigations for pressure tunnels and shaft
  • Supervision and interpretation of hydraulic model tests
  • Numerical 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 and transient operation. Design of linings in pressure tunnels and shafts.
  • Planning and design of river flood protection measures; river morphology and river restoration
  • Reservoir management and flood forecast
  • Reservoir sedimentation, physical processes including turbidity currents, innovative technical measures for sediment removal and management of turbidity currents
  • Rock scour due to high velocity falling plunging jets downstream of spillways and bottom outlets
  • Mitigation measures against hydropeaking downstream of dams; interaction of river morphology with aquatic biotopes
