After servicing the Faculty of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences’ Hydraulics Laboratory for over 30 years, a careful operation was carried out to remove the Hydraulics Water Tower to make way for new advanced computing and modern pumps.
The new Hydraulics Laboratory, opening Semester 1 2020, will be a state of the art facility located on level 1 of EZONE UWA Student Hub – a new building that will transform the way we educate our students, undertake our research and engage with our community.
“We can now achieve similar setups with a smaller footprint and computer run pumping systems relying less on manual configurations,” said Professor Anas Ghadouani (Environmental Engineering).
Over its years on campus the Hydraulics Water Tower has supported research, scientific papers and has helped train generations of undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The Hydraulics Laboratory will contain a number of self-contained experimental facilities that form an integral part of the undergraduate teaching program.
“The experiments are designed for students taking fluid mechanics classes in the second, third and fourth years of their degrees. The laboratory facilities also support the work of a number of final year and postgraduate student reach projects,” said Professor Greg Ivey (Oceans Graduate School).
