    Rol in het project AMICE

    The Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management (IWW) of RWTH Aachen University faces the various tasks related to hydraulic research and water resources management in teaching and research. The equipment and personnel structure of the IWW allows to make a significant contribution to the process of solving water management related difficulties in an interdisciplinary way. Initial point is the scientific approach, which is completed by different disciplines, located within the university or by national or international cooperations. The thematic depth of tasks highly demands professional skills of the IWW staff. In order to obtain this demand the IWW focuses on five main research subjects:

    • hydromechanics

    • groundwater

    • risks of hydraulic structures and flood protection

    • water quality and sediment transport

    • coastal engineering 

    Research on this topics is performed on the basis of innovative experimental model tests, high performance numerical methods and field measurements in comination with theoretical analysis, probabilistic and risk analysis. 

    In detail, the contribution to the AMICE project will be:

    - provide data for the bibliography (all data needed on the Meuse in Germany),

    - scientific publications

    - involved in all scientific works of WP1 (studies of floods and low-flows, scenarios, hydraulic modelling, impact assessment, definition of priorities, assessment of measures, proposition and evaluation of the strategy)

    - Rur reservoirs control rules: downscaling of AMICE scenarios for the Rur catchment basin, hydraulic modelling of the basin, economical impacts of future floods and low-flows in the basin, proposition and simulation of new control rules for the Rur reservoirs
