Hydraulic Modelling

SunWater’s ability to deliver infrastructure that is cost effective, reliable and safety optimised is backed by dependable testing and design techniques and a commitment to future research.

With highly skilled staff and a dedicated laboratory built specifically for testing hydraulic structures we can give customers detailed and individual predictions before the construction phase commences.

Our use of in-house physical modelling means that we not only offer cost efficiencies for the end-customer, but infrastructure with greater hydraulic efficiency, improved safety and reliability and lower construction costs.

Completed work to date includes studies and/or designs of:

  • Spillway design and performance
  • Spillway energy dissipaters
  • Intake and outlet works
  • Tidal barrages and weirs
  • Pump station intakes
  • Siphon structures
  • Diversion channels, and
  • Fishway design and flow requirements.
