KICT Inks Partnership with Deltares

The Korea Institute of Civil Engineering and Building Technology (KICT) has signed a memorandum of understanding with Deltares.

The first joint project of KICT and Deltares is entitled ‘the interaction between vegetation patchiness and river hydraulics: linking field, flume and model to reduce uncertainties in predictions’.

In this project large unscaled flume experiments with natural vegetation patches in 5 m wide and 600 m long flumes with a natural bed will be carried out at the outdoors ‘River Experiment Center’ of the KICT in Andong.

Results will provide important validation data for numerical modelling studies that link to the management of vegetated floodplains.

The memorandum of understanding was signed during the IAHR conference in Den Haag.

Dr. Hyeon Jun Kim (Director Hydro Science and Engineering Research Institute – KICT) and Tom Schilperoort (Director South and East Asia – Deltares) were present to sign this important step in the further cooperation between the institutes.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
