CASE STUDY: DEVELOPING A LOW-COST FISH PASSAGE SOLUTION TO MITIGATE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF WEIRS

  Daniella Montali-Ashworth commenced her CDT-SIS studentship project by adapting a theoretical concept related to fluid dynamics interactions with aquatic plants to better understand fluid mechanics associated with a cylindrical cluster of bristles. From the desk, she moved into the laboratory to test her assumptions, before moving into a highly interdisciplinary realm to explore how …
