This project investigated the feasibility of an integrated approach for the hydraulic design and analysis of geotechnical stability of rubble mound and caisson breakwaters, coupling CFD with FEM models.
The future service chain platform project investigated the use of new data handling and web-based service technologies and standards at HR Wallingford.
The effective management of estuarine locations requires a sound scientific basis for applied models of fine sediment dynamics.
We undertook highly accurate and adaptable 3D physical modelling, optimisation and overtopping testing for the development of the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
The CFD software package ANSYS CFX is widely used at HR Wallingford for 3D numerical simulations. We carried out a study into the simulation of air pocket transport in pipes.
Using experience gained over the last 60 years, scientists and engineers at HR Wallingford have developed a range of state-of-the-art physical modelling technology.
The ARC-Boat is a remote controlled boat that is used to collect river and estuarine data including flow, depth and suspended sediment concentrations.
From thermal and nuclear power stations, to marine renewable energy developments, our specialist services help to manage water-based risks for power projects
HR Wallingford translates the latest science into practical policy advice, strategy formulation and decision support for optimisation of investment planning
The Fast Flow Facility is one of the world's largest marine test facilities, delivering a world-leading capability in wave-current-sediment-structure modelling.
Our tsunami wave simulator generates model-scale tsunami in the laboratory, allowing researchers to better understand the potential impact of tsunami once they reach the coastline.
14,400 m² of physical modelling facilities housed in three purpose built halls
