Hydrometrics and Field Services

Hydrometrics and Field Services

Using state-of-the-art acoustic and optical instruments combined with in situ field samples, a description of hydrodynamics, sediment transport, and river geomorphology is obtained at different scales. Our techniques vary from high to low-gradient settings. RED YAKU provides a set of hydrometric data collection and field services including streamflow and bathymetry measurements, water and sediment sampling, […]

CFD and Numerical Modelling

CFD and Numerical Modelling

From the development to the performance of one-, two-, and three-dimensional models for fluid motion and hydraulics, RED YAKU experts offer a high-resolution description of mean and turbulent flow structures for small and large spatial domains (using High-Performace Computing tools) and different temporal resolutions. We conduct numerical modeling for river-related infrastructure evaluation, hydraulic impact assessment, […]

River Engineering

River Engineering

Increasing human demand (e.g. agriculture, urban development) generates pressures on aquatic ecosystems. RED YAKU works on implementing well-designed restoration efforts based on the understanding of natural processes (e.g. river morphology, aquatic biota communities, nutrient cycling) to enhance conservation planning and management. Our services in River Engineering include characterization of watershed and corridor features, analyses of […]

Geomorphology, Geosciences, and Sediment Transport

Geomorphology, Geosciences, and Sediment Transport

The characterization of landscape includes natural settings such as topography, geomorphology, land cover and use, and also human disturbance. In order to assess changes in the environment, it is crucial to monitor its spatio-temporal dynamics. Both field measurements and remote sensing are applied to characterize geomorphic patterns and biotic components to track disturbances in the […]

Water Resources Management

Water Resources Management

Worldwide, policies of water resources management started to implement interdisciplinary assessments to achieve an integrated, balanced, and sustainable use of natural resources. These assessments usually include a review of components, such as catchment characteristics, hydrodynamic analysis, sediment dynamics, human interventions, water quality, water balance, and ecological studies. In this context, RED YAKU approach is addressed […]

Design of Hydraulic Structures

Design of Hydraulic Structures

We apply hydraulic concepts and High-Performance Computing tools to design efficient hydraulic structures for river training and restoration, mining activities, energy-related hydraulic structures as well as urban hydraulics. Our team investigates the anticipated performance of hydraulic structures through numerical modeling, feasibility-level planning studies, preliminary and final design, and both hydrodynamics and sedimentation studies. RED YAKU […]

Hazards and Risk Assessment

Hazards and Risk Assessment

Flooding presents environmental issues in the coast, highland, and rainforest settings. Flood and inundation causes are related to high precipitation patterns and extreme events, but also to human intervention; therefore, an integrated assessment of hazards and risks is needed to develop appropriate and feasible strategies in the local context. RED YAKU recognized experts provide services […]
