HYDROLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS ( RIVER FLOW & RAIN FALL ) TEST RIG @ NIRMA UNIVERSITY

Hydrological investigations (river flow & rain fall) test rig

The Mobile bed flow visualization and Rainfall hydrographs are a self-contained unit designed to demonstrate some physical processes found in hydrology and fluvial geomorphology, including rainfall hydrographs for catchment areas of varying permeability, the formation of rivers and their features and effects of sediment transport, the abstraction of ground water by drains, both with and without surface recharge from rainfall, etc. This unit allows demonstrating, on a small scale, the hydrological principles of ground water flow and the applications of these principles in some engineering constructions. Moreover, it allows to study the use of drains for water abstraction, de-watering and drainage of lakes, and demonstration of flood risks linked to land drainage works.
