Report 2nd Belgian Hydraulics Day
After a break of about 15 years, the Direction des Recherches Hydrauliques of SPW revitalised a gathering of hydraulicians in Belgium, entitled the Belgian Hydraulics day held on 6/10/14 in Châtelet. In 2015, Flanders Hydraulics Research (FHR) wishes to continue this initiative. The purpose is both simple and interesting, namely bringing together academics and researchers active in Belgium in the field of hydraulics to meet, discuss and initiate exchange.
On Monday October 5 more than 70 hydraulicians from all over Belgium gathered at FHR.
Participants could choose from 3 sessions:
- Sebastien Erpicum (Ulg): Towards a better understanding of flows over Piano key weirs
- Didier Bousmar (LRH Châtelet): Rebuilding the fish pass of Rivière: experimental and numerical studies
- David Gallach Sánchez (UGent): Experimental study of overtopping behaviour of steep low-crested coastal structures
- Jeroen Vercruysse (FHR): Stilling basin design of combined inlet-outlet structures for flood control areas with controlled reduced tide
- Introductory presentation to scale model visit: Kristof Verelst (FHR) + visit of physical model “Influence of breaking logs on flow patterns induced by lock filling with gate openings”.
- Katrien Van Eerdenbrugh (UGent): BReach: A methodology for the asessment of data consistency in rating curve data
- Petrovic Dragana (ULB): Densitometric probe based on non-differential pressure: the technique allowing to follow suspended matter loads at very high concentrations
- Stéphan Creëlle (UGent): The importance of confluences in hydraulic network models of rivers and canals
- Emmanuel Cornet (FHR) : Discharge measurements @ Flanders Hydraulics Research
- Elin Vanlierde (FHR) : Sediment measurements @ Flanders Hydraulics Research + visit of measuring instruments Hydrological Information Centre
- Sven Smolders (FHR): The 3D unstructured SCALDIS model
