The Laboratory is one of the national standard laboratories of river, coastal engineering, hydraulics, renewable energy, disaster reduction and climate change


- River training, flood release, solutions to scour prevention of Red-Thai Binh river, and other rivers in Middle Vietnam;

- Solutions to sedimentation prevention at main estuaries in north, central, and south of Vietnam in order to release flood, improve navigation and establish anchor areas at estuaries: Cua Day, Ninh Co, Thuan An-Tu Hien, Lai Giang, My A, Dinh An, Tam Giang-Cau Hai

- Study and recommend coastal erosion prevention and protection solutions in North, Middle, and South of Vietnam as Hai Phong, Nam Dinh, Thanh Hoa, Quang Binh, Quang Ngai, Phu Yen, Khanh Hoa, Go Cong, Tien Giang.

- Physical models for optimal structural solutions, river bank erosion prevention and protection of downstream area of hydraulic works and hydropower plants such as Hoa Binh, Tuyen Quang, Son La, Cua Dat, Ta Trach, Nuoc Trong, Ngan Truoi, Ban Mong,…

- Implement border demarcation Vietnam - China, protect scour of 5 islands in Spratly islands.

- Exploit and develop maritime for big sea ports as Dinh An, Hai Phong; stabilizing drill of oil and gas exploitation; Sea ports planning as Tien Sa, Vung Ang, Dung Quat.


With high-tech solutions, experienced human resource, modern and synchronized equipment, in the future, the Lab will focus on the exploitation, use and thus bring in the full advantage of these equipment, also it will develop relation to diverse organizations, national and international experts to carry on the tasks of MARD, especially the task related to climate change, energy saving, pollution and natural sea exploitation and utilization.
