nhc’s physical hydraulic modeling laboratory operation has been meeting the needs of our clients for more than 30 years. Clients from around the world have come to nhc's laboratory to witness model testing, and to participate in every phase of the hydraulic design process: from conceptual design through the refinement of final design details. nhc engineers work side-by-side with our clients in the laboratory, developing, observing and documenting the performance of alternative project designs to ensure the final design for the project will meet performance, technical and economic requirements.
A very high percentage of our modeling work is performed for repeat clients. We take this as a testament to the utility of our modeling efforts in support of our clients, whether they be designers, decision makers or regulatory authorities. Our ability to offer a hybrid approach, combining physical modeling with numerical modeling and field observations, results in a very high degree of client confidence in final results produced and contributes to a very high degree of project credibility with decision makers, regulatory authorities, public participants and other project stakeholders.
