Workshop on Ultrasonic Doppler for Hydraulics

This Workshop on Ultrasonic Doppler (WUD) edition is organised during the International School for Hydraulics in Poland together with Ubertone in Strasbourg, France. It will take place on May 22nd, 2023 at the Institute of Hydro-Engineering (PAS) in Gdansk. The goal of this workshop is to give the opportunity to Master Students, PhD candidates and curious researchers to discover, use and discuss with peers about Ultrasonic Doppler Methods for Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Engineering.

The content of the workshop will be centered on experimental practice, including exercises of installation, data recording and data processing of UVP (Ultrasonic Velocity Profiler) and/or ADVP (Acoustic Doppler Velocity Profiler) on a laboratory flume.

Participants will also be invited to a dinner in Gdansk on the same day to network with each other and to continue with the peer-to-peer discussions, to discuss measurement needs, methods and applicability of the methods.

Theoretical and lecture-like information will be sent in advance, for the student to read and study beforehand.

The course will be led from 14.00 - 18.00 CEST by UBERTONE professionals and researchers/technicians from the PAS.

Exercises topics (to be confirmed with the detailed program):

  • Ultrasonic Doppler measurement technique
  • Ultrasonic Velocity profiler
  • Acoustic Doppler Velocity profiler
  • Monostatic and bistatic measurement technique
  • Open channel flumes
  • Acoustic scatterers for quality data
  • Through-wall measurements
  • Turbulence measurement
  • Bed roughness influence
