Improving fish pass design with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and behavioural models of eel movement

Improving fish pass design with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and behavioural models of eel movement

Tom Padgett is nearing the end of his PhD research, sponsored by JBA Trust, and recently published results from his research in the Royal Society Open Science Journal. Tom used the flexibility of computational modelling to test different eel tiles under several different conditions and eel life stages. Overall, passage efficiency decreases with increasing flow and steeper installation angles; it increases as elvers get larger, and older.
