The Hydraulics laboratory of the KU Leuven University studies diverse marine topics. The laboratory conducts research on the interaction between turbulence and concentration of (fine) sediments, as well as the interaction between waves, currents and sediment transport. Other important research topics include modelling of tide and storm induced currents, modelling of erosion and transport of sediment, the modelling of the dynamic behaviour of cohesive sediment soils and morphological changes in estuaries and along coasts. Within this context, remote sensing observations play an important role.

Furthermore, the researchers focus on the possible effects of climate change on the various functions of coasts and estuarine areas. The emphasis lies on changes in the border conditions (wave and storm surge) and the possible consequences (for instance inundations).

The laboratory is actively involved in national and international research projects and participates in the nautical bottom research of the Maritime Access division and the Flanders Hydraulics Research.
