LHI pioneers coastal engineering

Lanka Hydraulic Institute (LHI) has been exporting on tangibles through consultancy services in coastal engineering and water resources studies. LHI's expertise includes a team of engineers well versed in coastal, urban water and water resources engineering.

The testing and studies required for projects are carried out in the state-of-the-art flume and model basin in Katubedda. LHI's array of equipment measures waves, currents, tides, salinity, sediment, wind, temperature, seismic surveys and borehole testing.

The specifically designed IP cameras allow access to clients in any part of the world to get visuals of the laboratory and monitor the progress of projects.

Other IT facilities and virtual shared work spaces within the company's intranet contribute towards greater connectivity.

This facility of remote collaboration and participation in physical testing on-line real time web cams and the creation of virtual joint work spaces within LHI's intranet has made work much easier for clients who seek services from any part of the world.

LHI operates a modern hydraulic laboratory with reliable technical and IT support.

It is geared to cater to international needs for specialised physical and numerical modeling, engineering consultants, construction companies, property developers, governments and universities. LHI's professional and technical expertise in coastal, port engineering and coastal zone management can be seen across ports and harbours in various parts of the world.

LHI provided modeling studies on wave characteristics and structural stability for dredge disposal and land reclamation areas for the Busan New Port of Korea.

It has conducted all wave, current, tide, float tracking and bottom grab sample measurements at the Iran harbour-Marina, Kish island. Krishnapattinam and Kolkata harbours.

They were provided with LHI's 3D physical modeling to optimise the layout of the harbours.

LHI carried out a study for dredging for deepening and widening of passes in Rodrigues Islands in Mauritius, hydraulic physical modeling studies in Al Marjan islands in UAE and study of the oil jetty development at Massawa Harbour in Erithria.

LHI has carried out several projects in Sri Lanka's harbours such as the South harbour in the Colombo Port, Hambantota and Galle ports and fishery harbours.
