In our team, as befits the Department of Hydraulic Engineering, the topic "HYDRO" or WATER is the common denominator of all our activities. We deal with water (and sometimes also its mixtures) mainly in terms of quantity, although we are also familiar with selected elements related to its quality, mainly from the point of view of mixing and spreading mechanisms.
            We deal with both theoretical issues (including mechanics and modeling of flows, theoretical description of processes related to water and its mixtures in the environment and industry) and practical (including, among others, calculations and measurements for the needs of external clients). We conduct research, teaching, popularization, and implementation activities.

Our activities include such issues as:

  • modeling of steady and transient flows in open channels and their networks (rivers, streams, artificial canals)
  • modeling of steady and transient flows under pressure, incl. water hammer phenomena in pipelines and their networks,
  • modeling the processes of mixing and spreading pollutants,
  • analysis of hydrological processes, with particular emphasis on rainwater runoff in urban and non-urbanized catchments
  • experimental analysis (on a laboratory and real scale) of the course of phenomena related to the flow of water and sewage
  • theoretical and experimental analysis of ice phenomena
  • selected issues related to hydraulic engineering
  • selected issues related to water management and flood protection, incl. water management in urban areas
