PhD projects

Xiaonan Tang has research interests in a number of areas of water engineering including river flood hydraulics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling, sediment transport and turbulence measurement. Projects include:

Analytical solution of depth-average velocity lateral distribution for compound channel flows
Sediment transport in river models with overbank flow
CFD modelling of open channel flow to illustrate the effects of channel shape and heterogeneous roughness
The inclusion of vertical flow structures in analytic depth-averaged flow models of flooding
Derivation of routing parameters from cross-section survey: approximate flood routing method
