Hydrodynamics and morphology

Hydrodynamics and morphology are disciplines that focus on the numerical modelling of waves, tides and currents.

Witteveen+Bos advises national and international clients on:

  • waves, currents, tides, storm surges, wave run-ups, drainage of high water, downtime studies
  • morphology (like the effect of an intervention in a river on the water bottom settlement or the interaction between submarine pipelines and the sea bed)
  • fresh water/salt water, cooling water, oil diffusion
  • both quantitatively (numerical models) and qualitatively (expert opinions)
  • statistical analyses (extreme values analysis and morphological stochastic methods)
