Dam Hydraulics

Northstar Hydro, Inc. has built its reputation on codifying the complexities of hydraulic flow and providing concrete recommendations and design parameters to clients for structures impacted by water.   Our engineers are cross-trained in coastal processes and geomorphology and understand how hydraulics influence tidal and river features and nearby structures.  Projects are diverse including:

  • Hydrologic and hydraulic design for bridges over tidal rivers and bays
  • Flood elevations and velocities for large rivers to small streams
  • Design for super critical mountain stream crossings
  • Construction of dam outlet rating curves
