Surface Water Flow from Lake Zürich to Limmat River Under Quai Bridge in Zürich City Video
TK Consult AG undertakes calculations of flood protection and hazard in the city of Zürich, including river optimization and design of protection and prevention measures. This clip shows the surface water flow from Lake Zürich to Limmat river under Quai bridge in Zürich city. The static background displays the bathymetry of the system obtained after echo sounding (Wide Swath Bathymetry). The animated particles represent water trajectories and are scaled according to the flow velocity. This velocity field is the basis for sediment transport or erosion vulnerability calculations.
