Hydraulic flume (trailer mounted)

This flume is the first mobile demonstration model built by JBA Trust. It shows the flow of water in a simple channel, driven by a system of re-circulating pumps.

It also features scale models of typical engineered structures such as weirs, bridges, culverts and debris screens to show how different structures interact with the flow and affect flood risk.

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
