IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering has a proud 90-year history of research and innovation—and a future that promises to be even more exciting. As one of the oldest and most respected hydraulic research facilities in the United States, IIHR offers state-of-the-art computational simulation and laboratory modeling capabilities, as well as field observational research. This encourages application of an expanding range of approaches for the investigation and solution of a wide spectrum of flow problems, with unmatched ideal learning opportunities for students and researchers.

IIHR researchers are at the forefront of cutting-edge research in many areas, including several multimillion-dollar, multi-year programs, some of which have spanned decades:

  • Ship Hydrodynamics
  • Fish Passage
  • Artificial heart valves and blood flow in humans
  • Others
