Water engineering

Analysis of water-related issues relative to hydraulics, hydrology, coastal engineering and water resources management, and their implications on several Engineering branches

Research activities deal with the analysis of water-related issues linked to hydrology, hydraulic, coastal engineering and water resources management. Research topics include: mechanics of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, rainfall-runoff models, streamflow predictions in ungauged basins, flood risk assessment, monitoring and mitigation, design and management of hydraulic networks and infrastructures, fluvial hydro-morpho dynamics, flow in porous media, coastal hydro-morpho dynamics, coastal risk assessment, marine renewable energy, hydropower systems, water security and climate variability.
