Hydrology and Hydraulics

City and river hydraulics, dams and dykes, hydroelectric and infrastructures

Gruppo ingegneria Torino - Adeguamento acustico mense Leonardo

Gruppo Ingegneria Torino deals with planning and back-analysis of complex hydraulic phenomena with particular reference to the study of localized and distributed phenomena by means of numerical simulation models in 1D and 2D.

The in-depth knowledge of hydrological processes, and in particular of those of inflow-deflow transformation, allows the Group to carry out in-depth studies on the available water resources, on the phenomenon of flood formation and on the effects they determine on the territory.

The sector also deals with the management of supply, storage and distribution systems, with particular regard to both the typically engineering-design aspects and the problems of management, retrieval and use of the resources.

An important know-how is instead at the service of the various problems related to the drainage of urban and industrial areas and the management of wastewater, including their purification with innovative technologies.

The interaction between the different sectors also allows us to face and solve complex maintenance/adaptation interventions of industrial processes or to intervene in the field of large dykes (dams), sleepers and hydroelectric production plants, including the management of the relative machines.
