Computational Hydraulics and River Engineering Laboratory (CHREL) is a research group led by Dr. Jennifer G. Duan, Associate Professor, in the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, University of Arizona. CHREL is committed to state-of-art experimental research and numerical simulations of flow hydraulic and hydrologic process, as well as sediment transport and river morphodynamics.
Recent Research Highlights
1) Bridge Scour and Sediment Transport on the Santa Cruz and the Rillito River
2) NSF CAREER Grant: Experimental and Numerical Simulation of Meandering Evolution
