There is an ever-growing need for numerical modeling capability. Specifically in the area of Water Resources Engineering, numerical modeling plays an important role in understanding and solving complex hydraulic and ecological problems in natural rivers, streams, lakes, and coastal areas, as well as issues in water and oil transfer pipeline systems. Application tools developed using numerical modeling provide more insight and assist decision-making of engineers, regulators, and government agencies.
The goal of the Computational Hydraulics Research Group is to develop and/or apply numerical models to solve real-world problems in hydraulic engineering. The specific interest areas include flood forecasting, river ice processes, sediment transport, energy pipeline system, urban drainage system, surface water and groundwater.
