NWT has its own test laboratory for hydraulic simulations

Since middle 2021 NWT has established a hydraulic test-site for lab scale hydraulic modelling.

It is specifically applied for analysing of flow distribution patterns and short cutting potential in settling tanks, biological tanks and SBR facilities as well as visualisation of possible bottom  deposits in mixing tanks and interconnecting channels. For various projects hydraulic-froud-laws have been applied in scales of 1:10-1:50 in taylor made polycarbonate models with high resolution video recording and ultra-slow-motion analysing.

Also thermal stratification problems and density layering has been already successfully analysed.
