Mission:
The mission of the Hydraulic Engineering Research Unit is to 1) develop criteria for design and analysis of safe, economical structures and channels for the conveyance, storage, disposal, and measurement of runoff water; 2) develop basic knowledge of the hydraulics of surface water flows for use in planning measures needed for environmentally appropriate control of runoff water and/or assessing the safety and efficiency of existing measures; and 3) determine the ability of vegetation, riprap, and/or various manufactured materials to protect hydraulic structures and channels from erosion.

The Hydraulic Engineering Research is located in Stillwater, OK and is part of the Plains Area.
The Research Leader is Sherry Hunt.
