Hydrau-Tech has also conducted basic research in measuring velocity and shear fields in spillways and stilling basins, around piers and abutments and at channel contractions, and developed several well-known sediment transport and bridge scour relationships. They also authored the International Handbook of Reservoir Sedimentation. They have participated in numerous national and international projects and are recognized through their knowledge and expertise in:

  • Design of dams, barrages, weirs, and hydropower structures;
  • Modeling of various aspects of dam hydraulics and sedimentation;
  • Water resources planning/management;
  • Physical and numerical modeling of hydraulic structures;
  • Design, operation and rehabilitation/modernization of irrigation infrastructure;
  • Irrigation water management;
  • Environmental river mechanics/engineering;
  • Hydrology and drainage design (storm/sewer);
  • Water distribution system design;
  • Agricultural hydraulics;
  • Modeling of complex channel networks;
  • Hydraulics of dam failures and changes in channel morphology due to dam failures;
  • Numerical modeling of rivers, reservoirs, and watersheds;
  • Experimental and numerical modeling of scour and hydraulics at hydraulic structures;
