Hydraulic flume (free standing)

Our largest hydraulic flume shows the flow of water in a simple channel, driven by a system of re-circulating pumps, and features scale models of typical engineered structures.

We have built a variety of structures that can be introduced to the channel, including weirs, bridges, culverts, debris screens, a fish pass and a hydrobrake.

Observers can see in real time how these different structures interact with the flow and what happens under flood conditions.

The flume is approximately 3 metres long and is housed and transported in our custom built van along with our other river and coastal demonstration models. The van now comes complete with an awning to avoid to worst of the British weather.
