Doing the maths in Bangladesh


In your report 'Working on water' (NCE 22/29 August) you correctly say that HR Wallingford carried out physical modelling studies of the Bhairab Bridge. However, the main 2D mathematical modelling was subcontracted to the Surface Water Modelling Centre (SWMC) with support from DHI Water and Environment of Denmark.

SWMC/DHI have been providing hydraulic design modelling for all the major river crossings undertaken or planned in Bangladesh, including the Jamuna Bridge and Paskey Bridge, which is being built over the Ganges.
