Research Areas


Research in hydrotechnical engineering is carried out at the Coastal Engineering Laboratory - a state-of-the-art facility, and the largest university hydraulics laboratory in Canada - which occupies 2000 sq.m. on the West Campus of the university, the Hydraulics Laboratories (600 sq.m.) in Ellis Hall on the main campus, and the Cataraqui Stormwater Pond in the former Kingston Township in the areas of coastal engineering, hydrology, natural channel design, sediment transport, and solid-liquid mixture pipeline flow.


Interdisciplinary research projects are conducted with faculty in other areas of civil engineering (environmental, geotechnical and structural), other departments at Queen's (Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and Statistics) and other research institutes (National Water Research Institute and National Research Council).
