Abstract:
The division of Hydraulics and Environmental Engineering is one of the four divisions of the Civil
Engineering Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), the oldest department of the
Engineering School in AUTh. It covers all fields related to Water and the Environment in both the Civil
Engineering degree of AUTh (with 220 students per year) and the research oriented Ph.D degree (with
approximately 8 post-graduate students per year).
There are four research groups within the division with the following research interests: (a) Fluid
Mechanics and Hydraulics, (b) Environmental Engineering, (c) Water Resources Engineering and (d)
Maritime Hydraulics and Coastal Engineering. The laboratories of Hydraulics and Environmental
Engineering with advanced, modern instrumentation and laboratory channels and basins support the
above groups in their educational and research activities.
The research group in maritime hydraulics and coastal engineering consists of 5 professors, 3 research
associates with Ph.D degrees and 3 post-doctoral fellows. The group supervises approximately 20
undergraduate students in their diploma thesis every year and 12 Ph. D students. The current research
activities and experience of the group are in the following areas: (a) Storm surges (b) Computational
modelling of breaking and non-breaking waves, (c) Sediment transport in wave boundary layers and in
the surf zone (d) Waves-structures interaction (e) Laboratory and field measurements of coastal
processes (f) Design of harbours and coastal structures (g) Flood wave propagation.
