Dynamics of Tidal and Riverine Flow

Northstar Hydro, Inc. has a wide range capabilities from the standard hydrology and hydraulic analysis to understanding complex dynamics of flow.  Complex flow locations require non-standard analysis to provide valid solutions to problems.  Northstar Hydro’s engineers have specialized training in turbulent flow dynamics and sediment transport.  Projects have included:

  • 2-D modeling of an eddy basin to define sediment transport thresholds under flood flows
  • Open water wave interactions
  • Tidal system interactions with structures
  • Tidal bridge replacement impacts on tidal flow and upstream elevations
  • Infrastructure interactions
