Engineering Hydraulics Laboratory

The activities of the Construction Hydraulics Laboratory concern experimental modeling and the development of new hybrid numerical/experimental approaches applied to the analysis of flows in the natural and built environment.



They cover topics as varied as the design and dimensioning of hydraulic structures (spillways, dams, locks), sediment transport, flood risk prevention and management, and hydroelectricity and its environmental impact on aquatic fauna, for example.

These activities are carried out both in connection with teaching (support for bachelor's and master's courses) and as part of research and services at regional and international levels, in collaboration with the public and private sectors and research units within and outside ULiège.

The laboratory, which has been based at Val Benoit since its creation in 1937, moved in 2005 to a building constructed at Sart Tilman with ERDF funding (Crescendeau project). Its highly visual activities make it a popular laboratory for visits by specialists, schools and the general public.
