W.A.T.E.R.: Workshop on Advanced measurement Techniques and Experimental Research is a Summer School started in 2016 by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (www.vub.be) and the IAHR Experimental Methods and Instrumentation Committee (EMI) (www.iahr.org). The 6th edition will be held in the Instituto Superior Técnico - Universidade de Lisboa from July 18 to July 22, 2022. This Summer School is focused on experimental methods applied in different hydraulics fields. It combines theoretical sessions and hands-on measurement exercises in the laboratory. It is aimed at PhD and Master students as well as practitioners who are willing to get training in advanced hydraulic measurement techniques.
1. Hydraulic measurement fundamentals;
2. Image analysis methods: particle image and particle tracking velocimetry (PIV and PTV);
3. Acoustic Doppler measurement fundamentals;
4. Measurement of sediment concentration and fluxes;
5. Field measurements;
6. Data processing and data visualization.
The W.A.T.E.R. Summer School is aimed to provide training of different measurement techniques applied in hydraulics considering both laboratory and field environments. To achieve this goal a training program consisting of both technique fundamentals and their applications is presented. The participants will have the opportunity to perform real-time measurements of different physical variables (e.g. turbulence, velocity profiles, bottom topography, sediment flux, etc.) using state of the art techniques including PIV, PTV and UVP. The W.A.T.E.R. Summer School is also a meeting point of young researchers to foster the exchange and cooperation between different institutions, and at the same time to provide the participants with an international research environment.
