Physical hydraulic models


  • Construction of a research channel (with a free-flowing discharge of 10 m³/s) in Vienna between Danube and Danube Channel
  • Research channel model tests in Austria and Hungary
  • Combination of model test results and field measurements results
  • Variations possibilities for an attraction current
  • Development of optimized desanding plants
  • PTV techniques


  • Hydraulic engineering research channel with free flowing discharge (10 m³/s)
  • Increased process understanding of sediment transport, desanding problem, flushing, attraction current for fish ladders, testing of the impact of various installations
  • Report about measure results (research channel model tests, field tests)
  • Cooperation between hydraulic laboratories in Austria and Hungary (and further on in all Danube countries)
