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).
