Hydraulic flume

We would like to introduce you to our demonstration hydraulic flume. The flume is a scale model of the flow of water in a simple channel, driven by a system of recirculating pumps and featuring scale models of typical engineered structures such as weirs, bridges, culverts and debris screens. The flume appeals equally to those with a keen interest in hydraulics and to those for whom it is an unknown science.

In this 17 minute video, Jeremy Benn uses the flume to demonstrate some of the causes of flooding and how good design and maintenance of rivers and drainage channels can help to manage flood risk.

The flume is one of many physical models that we use to support our education and training activities.
