Hydraulic Physical Scale Modelling and Instrument Testing

Hydraulics Laboratory.

The Hydraulics Laboratory

The Hydraulics Laboratory, which is one of the largest in the UK, has the capacity of providing flow rates in excess of 120 litres per second to an assorted size of pipes, located in the 25m x 5m physical modelling area.

The laboratory's staff specialise in the design, build and interpretation of model studies involving sediment and solid transportation. They also have the capability of carrying out computational fluid dynamic (CFD) studies and have access to full scale pipe test facilities that can be used for flow measurement, testing and calibration.

Recent industrial collaborations have included working with London Underground and Mouchel plc. The laboratory has attracted significant funding from EPSRC and from other funding bodies, including the EU, DTI and Yorkshire Water.
