Advantages

  • Analysis prior to 3D hydraulic modelling, to achieve a preliminary optimisation of the structure

  • Assessment of the structure’s operation, conducted by experts in collaboration with the company in charge of construction

  • Simulation of optimisation scenarios of the construction or operating costs, using simple civil engineering adjustments
