Hydraulic Modeling and Consulting

Alden has been conducting physical hydraulic model studies since 1894 to solve flow problems for utilities, engineering firms, the federal government, and vendors of hydraulic equipment.

More recently, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has become a reliable, cost-effective tool for solving many complex hydraulic, hydrodynamic, and heat and mass transfer problems. 

This unique combination of computational expertise with over a century's worth of experience in physical flow modeling can be applied in concert to provide cost-effective, practical solutions to your flow problems.

Operations for Hydraulic Modeling and Consulting are split between the laboratories in Holden, Massachusetts, and Everett, Washington.
