PhD position on dike breach modelling at EDF R&D (Paris) and University of Liege, Belgium
Topic: Physical and numerical modelling of dike breach induced flow as a result of overtopping
Duration: 3 years (2014-2017)
The aim of this PhD project is to improve the physical understanding of the process of gradual breaching of river dikes as a result of overtopping. Based on physical modeling, the thesis will lead to the development of models for predicting the breach geometry and breach outflow with a higher accuracy and reliability compared to tools available today. The project will combine experimental tests with innovative developments in existing numerical models Telemac and Wolf2D
