Facilities go to indexgo upgo down
Educational Laboratory: experimental flume 12 metres long fully automatized endowed with exercise tools.
Research Laboratory:
Experimental flume, 8 metres long, slope varying in high range, for mud-flows rheology.
Experimental flume, 10 metres long, slope varying in a high range, dedicated to debris-flow rheology.
Experimental flume, 12 metres long, to test the effect of vegetation in natural river.
Facilities to reproduce real debris-flow events at reduced scale.
Large scale installation devoted to phenomena in gravel bed rivers.
Experimental flume, 25 metres long and 3 metres wide, to study morphological dynamics of braiding (under construction).
All the flumes are equipped with fine measuring techniques (among them: high frequency and high accuracy video camera, a Doppler Ultrasonic anemometer, LDA's).
