Complementary laboratory

Multidisciplinary laboratory of CT-Scan for non-medical use

ctscan-2The CT Scanning for Civil Engineering and Natural Resources Laboratory possesses a smaller scale wave flume. This equipment can be used to carry out experiments at a small scale before they are reproduced at larger scale in the main flume. The small flume enables the study of internal structures of marine sedimentary objects, the study of sedimentary dynamics in coastal and estuarine environments (sedimentological, geophysical, and physical measurements, use of radioactive tracer), and helps reveal transport processes.

In addition, it’s configuration makes it possible to incorporate several measuring devices of the same type as those used in the large scale wave flume.
