PROJECTS AND INNOVATION
We develop and provide novel, innovative flow simulation tools and experimental methods for water management stakeholders.
We perform field and laboratory measurements to describe water flow in porous and karstified rocks. We evaluate pumping tests in combination with numerical solutions to analyse groundwater flow from laboratory to regional scale.
We are advancing field methods and protocols for measuring sediment transport in surface waters to be used in the daily work of authorities. A promising technology is the Particle Image Velocimetry for improving bedload transport sampling.
We develop software for urban water systems. Our space-time failure models of water networks to support reconstruction strategies. Our sediment transport module is integrated into the EPA SWMM stormwater hydrodynamics software.
We improve technologies for water and wastewater treatment, water reuse, sludge digestion and disposal, as well as micropollutants. Our research on Microbial Electrolysis Cells (MEC) may serve as a novel technology in water treatment and groundwater remediation.
We contribute to national-scale water management projects. Our surveys help refine to the national emission model with improved estimation of the pollution of surface waters associated with urban road runoff. As part of the national flood management strategy, we have established a probabilistic modelling approach for the revision of design flood levels for all rivers in Hungary.

the planning of the national sediment monitoring network. as a novel technology in water treatment and groundwater remediation.
Stochastic rainfall generator and downscaling Modell of the flood levels for all rivers in Hungary.
methods are developed to urban rainfall runoff.
We develop and provide novel, innovative inertial sensor-based measurement arrangement and track quality index for condition monitoring of tramway track.
Development of a railway track and bridge interaction Development of a railway track and bridge interaction model includes
model in respect of longitudinal effects. the longitudinal displacement of bridges due to braking forces (upper diagram)
and the negative acceleration of the locomotives (lower diagram).
