At the CSIR coastal and hydraulics laboratory, researchers build scaled physical models of ports and structures to simulate the effect that elements such as wind and water will have on real ports and harbours. Kishan Tulsi, a civil engineer at this national research facility, has worked on projects such as the massive Doha harbour in Qatar, the Port Hedland Harbour in Australia and local projects such as the Ngqura port in Port Elizabeth and the Durban access channel widening and presently, breakwater investigations in Richards Bay.
