Learning outcomes
provide training on theoretical and practical knowledge concerning advanced measurement techniques used for research in the fields of hydraulics and fluid mechanics and in multiple applications, both in the laboratory and in the field. To achieve this goal, participants are offered a path in which the theoretical principles, on which each measurement technique is based, are given. Subsequently, the necessary knowledge concerning the use of the instrumentation are learnt. Finally, the participants will carry out in exercises involving the direct use of measuring instruments. The theoretical-practical approach of W.A.T.E.R. offers participants the opportunity to investigate various physical variables (such as velocity profiles, turbulence intensity, seabed topography, sediment streams), using state-of-the-art equipment provided by companies that support the initiative. The Summer School is also a meeting point between young researchers and innovative companies, such as start-ups, operating in the field of advanced measurement techniques for fluid mechanics. This fosters the exchange and cooperation between different institutions in a context of international, friendly and advanced research.
