Research Interests

  • Industrial Two-Phase Flows
    In high-velocity turbulent flows, air bubbles are entrained at the free surface. This process (self-aeration) is caused by the turbulent velocity fluctuations acting next to the free surfaces. The presence of air within the flow increases the bulk of the flow, modifies the momentum shear layers and enhances the air-water gas transfer. The project is based upon new experimental investigations using large-scale experiments. The results enable a better understanding of the fluid mechanics of free-surface air-water flows.
  • Estuarine processes
    Investigation of the hydrodynamics and turbulent mixing in estuarine zones, under micro- and macro-tidal conditions. Field works. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Physical modelling.
  • Mixing and dispersion in rivers and estuaries
    Turbulent mixing in small estuaries with application to water quality modeling
  • Engineering heritage
    History of technology. Historical development of hydraulic engineering and structures, includings dams, spillways, weirs, culverts ...
  • Non-Newtonian fluid dynamics
    Experimental and theoretical study of non-Newtonian fluid flows, including thixotropic fluid flows, dam break, debris flows.
  • Open Channel Flow and Hydraulic Engineering
    Open channel flows are encountered in a wide range of applications from large rivers to roof gutters including irrigation channels. New research investigations include the hydraulic jump flows, undular flows, weir overflow, stepped cascades and supercritical flows. Applications to hydraulic structures cover high-head spillways, stepped chutes, rubber dams, stilling basins and water quality prediction.
  • Hydraulic structures
    Design and operation of spillway systems, incl. high head structures, large dams and overflow sections.
  • Air entrainment in hydraulic structure and industrial applications
    Study of air entrainment and air-water flows in hydraulics structures, hydraulic systems, re-aeration plants and water treatment systems.

  • In recent years, the design floods of a number of dams were re-evaluated and the revised flows were often larger than those used for the original designs. In many cases, occurrence of the revised design floods would result in dam overtopping because of the insufficient storage and spillway capacity of the existing reservoir. A number of overtopping protection systems were developed for embankments and earthfill dams. These include concrete overtopping protection systems, timber cribs, sheet-piles, riprap and gabions, reinforced earth, Minimum Energy Loss weirs, and the precast concrete block protection systems developed by the Russian engineers (http://www.uq.edu.au/~e2hchans/over_st.html). Recent studies demonstrated a strong correlation between air entrainment, stepped chute hydrodynamics and turbulence. The findings imply that the rate of energy dissipation on stepped spillways might be drastically affected by the interactions between entrained air and flow turbulence.

  • When a river mouth has a flat, converging shape and when the tidal range exceeds 6 to 9 m, the river may experience a tidal bore (http://www.uq.edu.au/~e2hchans/tid_bore.html). A tidal bore is basically a series of waves propagating upstream as the tidal flow turns to rising. It is a positive surge. As the surge progresses inland, the river flow is reversed behind it (e.g. LYNCH 1982, CHANSON 2001). The best historically documented tidal bores are probably those of the Seine river (France) and Qiantang river (China). The mascaret of the Seine river was documented first during the 7th and 9th centuries AD, and in writings from the 11th to 16th centuries (http://www.uq.edu.au/%7Ee2hchans/mascaret.html). It was locally known as "la Barre". The Qiantang river bore, also called Hangzhou bore, was early mentioned during the 7th and 2nd centuries BC, and it was described in 8th century writings. The bore was then known as "The Old Faithful" because it kept time better than clocks. A tidal bore on the Indus river might have wiped out the fleet of Alexander the Great (MALANDAIN 1988, JONES 2003). Another famous tidal bore is the "pororoca" of the Amazon river observed by PINZON and LA CONDAMINE in the 16th and 18th centuries respectively. The Hoogly (or Hooghly) bore on the Gange was documented in 19th century shipping reports. Smaller tidal bores occur on the Severn river near Gloucester, England, on the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, France, at Turnagain Arm and Knik Arm, Cook Inlet (Alaska), in the Bay of Fundy (at Petitcodiac and Truro), on the Styx and Daly rivers (Australia), and at Batang Lupar (Malaysia). In the present study, physical modelling will be used to reprodduced full-scale observations and to gain new insights in the unsteady hydrodynaics. The results will provide some new understanding of mixing processes in tidal-bore-affected estuaries.

  • When a river mouth has a flat, converging shape and when the tidal range exceeds 6 to 9 m, the river may experience a tidal bore {http://www.uq.edu.au/~e2hchans/tid_bore.html}. A tidal bore is basically a series of waves propagating upstream as the tidal flow turns to rising. It is a positive surge. As the surge progresses inland, the river flow is reversed behind it. New researchinto the unsteady hydrodynamics of tidal bores and postive surges will be investigated ina large-size physical model.

  • In recent years, the design floods of a number of dams were re-evaluated and the revised flows were often larger than those used for the original designs. In many cases, occurrence of the revised design floods would result in dam overtopping because of the insufficient storage and spillway capacity of the existing reservoir. A number of overtopping protection systems were developed for embankments and earthfill dams. These include concrete overtopping protection systems, timber cribs, sheet-piles, riprap and gabions, reinforced earth, Minimum Energy Loss weirs, and the precast concrete block protection systems developed by the Russian engineers (http://www.uq.edu.au/~e2hchans/over_st.html). Recent studies demonstrated a strong correlation between air entrainment, stepped chute hydrodynamics and turbulence. The findings imply that the rate of energy dissipation on stepped spillways might be drastically affected by the interactions between entrained air and flow turbulence.

  • When a river mouth has a flat, converging shape and when the tidal range exceeds 6 to 9 m, the river may experience a tidal bore (http://www.uq.edu.au/~e2hchans/tid_bore.html). A tidal bore is basically a series of waves propagating upstream as the tidal flow turns to rising. It is a positive surge. As the surge progresses inland, the river flow is reversed behind it (e.g. LYNCH 1982, CHANSON 2001). The best historically documented tidal bores are probably those of the Seine river (France) and Qiantang river (China). The mascaret of the Seine river was documented first during the 7th and 9th centuries AD, and in writings from the 11th to 16th centuries (http://www.uq.edu.au/%7Ee2hchans/mascaret.html). It was locally known as "la Barre". The Qiantang river bore, also called Hangzhou bore, was early mentioned during the 7th and 2nd centuries BC, and it was described in 8th century writings. The bore was then known as "The Old Faithful" because it kept time better than clocks. A tidal bore on the Indus river might have wiped out the fleet of Alexander the Great (MALANDAIN 1988, JONES 2003). Another famous tidal bore is the "pororoca" of the Amazon river observed by PINZON and LA CONDAMINE in the 16th and 18th centuries respectively. The Hoogly (or Hooghly) bore on the Gange was documented in 19th century shipping reports. Smaller tidal bores occur on the Severn river near Gloucester, England, on the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, France, at Turnagain Arm and Knik Arm, Cook Inlet (Alaska), in the Bay of Fundy (at Petitcodiac and Truro), on the Styx and Daly rivers (Australia), and at Batang Lupar (Malaysia). In the present study, physical modelling will be used to reprodduced full-scale observations and to gain new insights in the unsteady hydrodynaics. The results will provide some new understanding of mixing processes in tidal-bore-affected estuaries.

  • When a river mouth has a flat, converging shape and when the tidal range exceeds 6 to 9 m, the river may experience a tidal bore {http://www.uq.edu.au/~e2hchans/tid_bore.html}. A tidal bore is basically a series of waves propagating upstream as the tidal flow turns to rising. It is a positive surge. As the surge progresses inland, the river flow is reversed behind it. New researchinto the unsteady hydrodynamics of tidal bores and postive surges will be investigated ina large-size physical model.

  • In recent years, the design floods of a number of dams were re-evaluated and the revised flows were often larger than those used for the original designs. In many cases, occurrence of the revised design floods would result in dam overtopping because of the insufficient storage and spillway capacity of the existing reservoir. A number of overtopping protection systems were developed for embankments and earthfill dams. These include concrete overtopping protection systems , timber cribs, sheet-piles, riprap and gabions, reinforced earth, Minimum Energy Loss weirs, and the precast concrete block protection systems developed by the Russian engineers. New physical tests will be a conducted ina a large-size facility to optiise present design guidelines.

  • Flood waves resulting from dam breaks and flash floods have been responsible for numerous losses. In the present study, sudden flood releases were investigated down a stepped waterway initially dry, while additional tests may be conducted on an initially filled waterway.
