Svašek Hydraulics

Coastal, harbour and river engineering consultants

 

Bram Bliek (1955) is the General Manager at Svašek Hydraulics since 1984.
He joined the company in 1977 upon completion of his MSc work at Delft University of Technology.
This work focused on the morphodynamics of a tidal channel in the Western Scheldt and was supervised by Prof. E.W. Bijker, Prof. P.A. van de Velde and Associate Prof. W.T. Bakker. At Svašek Hydraulics he was intensively trained and skilled by Honzo Svašek.
This resulted in his assignment as a Deputy Director in 1983, and as the General Manager in 1984. Since 2003 he also holds the position of Chairman.

Thanks to his education and training and a broad experience on many projects in many countries in more than 30 years, Bram Bliek has become a recognised expert in coastal engineering and hydraulic modelling. His expertise is based on a sound and practical understanding of the physical processes in surface waters and includes themes like tidal and river currents, wind wave and swell characteristics, seabed morphology, hydraulic structures and their environmental impacts, and the interactions between all of this.

He is the coach of the growing team of young professionals at Svašek Hydraulics.
