Hydraulic modelling and flow measurement

Many of today’s water and wastewater networks are becoming old and are in need of renewal. Meanwhile, climate change and stricter environmental legislation are imposing new demands on the management of groundwater and flooding risks, among others matters. Sweco Energoproekt Jsc possess solid knowledge and extensive experience of renewal planning and environmental impact, which guarantees cost-effective and sustainable solutions for our clients.

Hydraulic modelling entails simulating various scenarios using computer models, which allow flows in water and wastewater networks and watercourses to be analysed. This method helps us with such tasks as charting additional water, and predicting the effects of reconstruction and flooding risks. Hydraulic modelling is also a tool used to simulate currents and to design and dimension hydraulic civil structures, such as spillways and stilling basins of dams.
