Supported by the European Community the Franzius-Institute for Hydraulic, Waterways and Coastal Engineering of the University Hannover offers Fundamental Hydraulic Research for Coastal Areas by using Large-scale Facilities of the Hydro-Lab-Cluster North Germany under the Enhancing Access to Research Infrastructures action of the Improving Human Research Potential and the Socio-economic Knowledge Base programme of the Fifth Framework Programme of the European Community. Within the infrastructure, entitled Hydro-Lab-Cluster North Germany, access will be provided to three physical modelling facilities for large-scale experiments (2-D Wave Channel Schneiderberg, 3-D Wave Basin Marienwerder and Restricted-Water Ship Towing Tank Marienwerder) and to Computer Facilities for Numerical Simulations offering the absolutely state-of-the-art and rather rare opportunity in the European Community to combine physical and numerical modelling in the field of hydraulic (e.g. water inlet structures), waterways (e.g. ship operation on rivers) and coastal engineering (e.g. wave loads on structures) at the same time.
Users applying for access to the Hydro-Lab-Cluster North Germany are required to submit proposals to the Franzius-Institute for Hydraulic, Waterways and Coastal Engineering of the University Hannover. General conditions for participation and guidelines for proposals can be found on the Internet at http://www.fi.uni-hannover.de/proj99/TNA.html and/or will be specified upon request to the Franzius-Institute for Hydraulic, Waterways and Coastal Engineering
