Water Resources

Water is the most important resource on our planet: it’s finite, non-replaceable and impossible to live without. Protecting this precious resource while harnessing its power and potential is one of our key capabilities. Our water resources engineers respond to and manage flood crises, harness the power of water for hydroelectric development, and manage stormwater for safe and effective urban design.

Numerical & Physical Modelling

To understand and predict how water will behave, hydraulic modelling tools are essential for a range of projects.

Our engineers use the latest technologies and have a strong modelling skillset in the following areas:

  • hydrologic modelling
  • river modelling (steady state & dynamic modelling)
  • two-dimensional hydrodynamic modelling
  • computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling (i.e. three-dimensional modelling)
  • two-dimensional wave modelling
  • sediment transport and erosion potential modelling
  • definition and oversight of physical model studies
