Project description

The project entails a cooperation between the VUB, KULeuven, Flanders Hydraulics Research, UA and UGent. The goal of the project is the design, development and testing of a new device capable of monitoring the in situ settling behaviour of flocculated material. In this framework, laboratory and field measurements will be executed and modelling of this behaviour will be attempted.
