Inland and Urban Water

Inland and Urban Water

Inland Water and River Hydraulics

LHI has long experience in carrying out field investigations, mathematical and physical modelling river flow and other inland water bodies while LHI’s reliability, honestly and professionalism provide true values to those partnering with it.

Urban Storm Drainage and Waste Water Drainage

Man lives in an increasingly urbanised environment where new building structures have made Urban Drainage an increasingly difficult. Engineering Urban Storm Water and Waste Water drainage is extremely important in such areas of mass development. In fact, drainage is the first factor to deal with in urban planning.

  • Sea outfall modelling etc.

Physical Modelling of Inland Water Structures

LHI's comprehensive model testing facilities serve customers and projects within inland water engineering. Model testing has been conducted for last three decades for different clients from all over the world.
Today model testing is used extensively in hybrid and composite modelling, in which physical models work interactively or combined with numerical models and informatics systems. This provides customers with ground-breaking solutions. Accurate and up-to-date equipment are available in-house, and our equipment is tested by experts regularly. This is a particular advantage to our customers since the equipment are tested, they are available to clients at short notice.

  • Physical Modelling covers a wide range of testing for most of the Inland Water Engineering applications. It includes detailed Hydraulic Study of Layout, Flow Pattern, Sediment Transport, Morphological Changes and Erosion Pattern etc. of intakes, spillways, stilling basins and other structures.
  • LHI is well equipped with necessary facilities and a good knowledge base to undertake any modelling activity as per client's need.
