Hydraulics research station

The department has is own testing area in the hydraulics research station, located in the second basement of the building "Ingenieurwissenschaften I". A pump line between the watercourse Ahna on the campus and the research station suplies several testing plants with surface water. The little river is also used as a storm water overflow discharge for the sewer system of Kassel. The changing water quality offers perfect conditions for many experiments.

The hydraulics research center is under supervision of the Research Center for Environment Engineering and Water Engineering. This Center is a common facility of the departments in the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
