The hydraulics laboratory in the School of Civil Engineering houses an extensive range of apparatus for physical modelling of coastal hydrodynamics and sediment transport processes.

These facilities are used for physical modelling of coastal systems in postgraduate, 4th year thesis and collaborative research work. The laboratory employs full-time technical staff whom provide expertise in experiment design and construction. The laboratory also houses the experiments used in the practical component of undergraduate fluids subjects.

Our facilities include:
