Physical hydraulic model studies
The Australian Flow Management Group (AFMG) can be engaged to conduct hydraulic modelling of systems or components.
This can be an effective risk mitigation tool for large hydraulic projects. The relatively small input cost of the modelling can save the major cost of having to modify a substantial piece of infrastructure after construction. Further, data obtained from running flow scenarios can be used to optimise other components in a connected network.
Examples of hydraulic model testing conducted by the AFMG include:
- Fishway hydraulic models
- Locks and weir system modelling
- Power station cooling water hydraulic models
- Surface water models for creeks, drainage systems, stream flows and other modelling
