Polish Academy of Sciences Institute of Hydroengineering (IBW): Partner 27

Polish Academy of Sciences Institute of HydroengineeringThe Institute of Hydroengineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IBW PAN) was established in 1953. The Institute activity covers fundamental and applied research in offshore and coastal engineering, inland water engineering, soil mechanics and environmental engineering. The staff has considerable experience both in theoretical, laboratory and field investigations. At the moment there are 73 employees including 31 PhD holders. Scientific works, carried out in the IBW PAN, are closely connected with industry needs. IBW PAN is also very active in collaboration with foreign research and scientific partners. The Institute is equipped with modern laboratory, as well as computing and measuring facilities. IBW PAN is divided into several departments responsible for selected research areas. The institute carries out research on the following topics: wave fore- and hindcasting, measurements of wind and waves, investigation and modeling of coastal hydrodynamics, soil mechanics, river hydraulics, shore protection, flood prediction and protection and coastal zone management.

The above activities are accomplished by theoretical modelling and empirical studies. The theoretical solutions, mathematical models of physical processes, supported by statistical and stochastic analysis, are extensively tested versus experimental data available in literature and verified by experiments carried out in IBW PAN. The empirical investigations are carried out at the IBW PAN’s laboratory facilities, as well as by field measurements.
