Torrent modelling area
A unique, tilting platform for studying torrential mountain streams, sediment deposition areas, mudslides, alluvial fans, etc.
This platform is dedicated specifically to studies of steeply-sloping watercourses and has all the equipment required to address the key issues that arise in this field (scour, high velocities, sediment transport)
- Platform surface area: 15 m x 5 m
- Maximum tilt: 20%
- System for supplying and controlling solid and liquid discharges
- System for continuously measuring outgoing solid discharges
- System for mapping bed changes (photogrammetric survey or laser scanning).
