The Environmental Hydraulics Laboratory of INRS allows large scale simulation of waves, tides and strong river currents. Located in the Québec City Metropolitan Technology Park, the flume is 120 metres long, 5 metres wide and 5 metres deep. It is the largest of its type in North America. Have a look at the features of this unique equipment in the company of Professor Jannette B. Frandsen, holder of the Research Chair in Coastal and River Engineering, of Professor Bernard Long, an expert in marine sedimentology, of the scientific coordinator Régis Xhardé, and of the Vice Rector of Research and Academic Affairs, Yves Bégin. The experimental work done at the Environmental Hydraulics Laboratory benefits the Research Chair in Coastal and River Engineering, funded by the Ministry of Transport of Quebec and the Ministry of Public Security of Quebec.
