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.

The flume is approximately 3 metres long and can demonstrate a wide variety of structures in 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.

Factsheet: Dimensions, demonstration requirements and other vital statistics for the flume are available in this factsheet.
