Armfield’s Research Flume, designed by our engineers to carry out flood event studies, was installed earlier this year at Newcastle University’s Fluid Science Department. During the commissioning of this key research equipment footage was taken showing the capabilities on environmental research including areas such as leaky barriers, dams giving away, effect on structures and more. The flume features sediment recirculation, up to a 5% tilt, touch screen control, subfloor reservoir tank and wavemaker.
This project adds to a suite of flumes in the Novak lab which are still in constant use.
