“Gaudenzio Fantoli” Hydraulics Laboratory (LIF)

The main topics covered by the laboratory are: the determination of pressure drop coefficients (including roughness) of hydraulic fittings; the characterization of hydraulic regulating devices (valves), hydraulic-structural monitoring, solid transport experiments, underwater equipment testing (UNI EN 1809: 2014+A1); the calibration (ACCREDIA, LAT 104) of liquid flow meters (flowmeters). In addition, LIF deals with the design, the management and implementation of: small-scale hydraulic models for public purposes, large hydraulic models, stations for hydro-metering.
