IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering is leading a worldwide revolution in the development and application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), in support of simulation-based design (SBD). Researchers at IIHR use SBD — a sort of virtual reality, supported by model-scale experiments — to develop efficient new ways to design and test engineering designs and prototypes.
Computer simulations at IIHR are complemented by model-scale physical experiments conducted at the institute’s facilities that support the design and construction of large models. This combination of computer simulation and experimental modeling is putting IIHR at the cutting edge of research in fish passage design, total dissolved gas prediction in rivers, and ship hydrodynamics.
