The hydraulic research station have the capability to undertake field measurements such as: (discharge measurements, velocity measurements, river bed profiles, suspended sediment sampling, bed sampling, soil profile sampling, hydrographic and bathometric survey). The instruments used for the field measurements include:

  • ♦ ADCP for discharge, sediment concentration, water depth measurements.
  • ♦ Current meters for velocity measurements
  • ♦ Modern echo-sounder with GPS for bed profiles
  • ♦ Suspended load sampler and bed load sampler
  • ♦ Boats
  • ♦ Survey levels
  • ♦ Total station
  • ♦ Theodolites
  • ♦ Neutron probes
  • ♦ Parshall flume
  • ♦ Vane flowmeter

The Hydraulic Research Center (HRC - Sudan) is the research arm of the Ministry of Water Resources and Electricity, Sudan.

It is located in Wad Medani, Gezira State. It was established by the technical assistance of the UNDP program in 1976 - 1986 to support the development of the water sector in Sudan, with the main mission as “to support decision making of water resources management in Sudan through solution-oriented research”.
