There is no denying that water engineers can find commonality in topics as disparate as beaver dams and water. Learn more in this newsletter, as well as some of the work of the National Biofilms Innovation Centre and opportunities in water engineering.
Square waves, dyed rip currents and tsunamis – a perfect storm awaits you in our latest newsletter. Add the controversial topic of sewage discharges to water courses and the unsavoury topic of how fats, oils and greases (FOG) in sewers might be used to create energy and products – and …
This newsletter examines the Jul 21 flooding event in the Ahr in the west of Germany, looking at flooding data and the influence of vineyard mechanisation. Other features include lab classes at home, individual projects on the circular bioeconomy and much more.
A fascinating further exploration of water crime (part 2) – read our latest newsletter to find out why this man wasn’t prosecuted for growing illegal drugs, and learn about chemical, biological and even cyber-attacks in this sector.
What do tsunamis, standing waves and a shrewd Scotsman have in common? Read this month’s WEEG newsletter to find out more.
Water crime is not something generally considered by most people, but it can have a devastating impact. This newsletter contains part one of a two-part look at water crime. Read further for updates to the hydraulics lab and details on our Facebook pages.
This month’s newsletter contains an editorial on the link between hydraulics and electrical engineering. There is also news of a Group Design Project on the re-design of the Littlehampton Breakwater (shown above), as well as the fascinating use of Google Earth as a tool for flowsheeting, troubleshooting and upgrading sewage …
This month’s newsletter examines the spectacular effect of wave uprushes. You can also meet our new Hydraulic Engineering Experimental Officer, Hannah Williams. Dr Yue Zhang outlines an individual project which looks at sewer overflow events and the resultant pollution treatment measures.
This edition deals with two subject areas that our colleagues are working in, namely VFA production created through the fermentation of organic materials and the effects of cavitation in water engineering and in nature. There are some surprising aspects to both of these technologies, so well worth a read.
In the world of hydraulic engineering, water is generally considered to be incompressible. This newsletter explores some scenarios where a water-air mixture can become compressible, producing some surprising results, including “dragon’s teeth”. Whilst a common topic of apocalyptic films, tsunamis are also a reality for some regions. However, little is …
