  • Controlled and random electrodynamic vibration testing
  • Full-scale hydraulic testing (up to 510 L/s)
  • Scale modelling of hydraulic structures (e.g. fish passages, culverts and overland flow paths)
  • Environmental testing in a controlled temperature and humidity room
  • Physical hydraulic model studies
  • Irrigation equipment testing
  • Water meter testing and calibration
