Training on advanced measurement technique at the W.A.T.E.R. Workshop 2018

The third edition of the W.A.T.E.R Summerschool (Workshop on Advanced measurement Techniques and Experimental Research) took place this year from September 24-28th in the VLIZ-Ostend (Vlaams Instituut voor de Zee) in Oostende, Belgium.

It has been organized by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the IAHR Experimental Methods and Instrumentation Committee (EMI) in collaboration with Flanders Marine Institute and Flanders Hydraulics Research, and the support of ILA and UBERTONE. This Summer School is focused on experimental methods applied in different hydraulics fields.

Lectures and lab sessions are given on optical and acoustics measurement techniques: PIV, PTV, UVP, ADCP. Other topics have been covered, like sediment transport, reservoirs management, data processing, QIP.

For the UVP training, after the lecture given by Dr. Massimo Guerrero from the University of Bologna, students were given an assignment to learn how to use the UB-Lab and to process some data recorded on a small portable flume. They also experienced on instantaneous/average and on one component/two components measurements.
