Service Description

Environmental modeling is based on the transport of substances using the so-called advection-diffusion equation. The water quality module D-Water Quality of the Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite (Delft3D FM) is based on this equation and it offers different computational methods to solve it numerically on an arbitrary irregularly shaped grid, on a grid of rectangles, triangles or curvilinear computational elements. The sediment transport module of D-Water Quality can be applied to model the transport of suspended (cohesive) sediment, for instance, to carry out water quality and ecology studies where suspended sediment is an important factor because of turbidity or as a carrier of pollutants. It is in fact a sub-module of the water quality module. The ecology transport module D-Water Quality distributes the available resources (nutrients and light) in an optimal way among the different types of algae. It is in fact a sub-module of the water quality module. Objective of the course Setting up and running a water quality, an ecological, particle tracking as well as an oil disposal simulation. Course subjects • Some basic theoretical concepts of environmental modelling; • Some numerical aspect to transport modelling; • Coupling hydrodynamic output to the environmental model input; • Selecting substances and processes with the Processes Library Configuration Tool; • Setting up and running a sediment, oxygen, nutrients and algae simulation; • Setting up and running a tracer simulation. This course is aimed at • Knowledge how to model the hydrodynamics; • Project engineers, project leaders and researchers. Online format In preparation of the training, we’ll send you all the material and will ask you to install the stand-alone Delft3D Flexible Mesh application on your own machine. While attending the training, it will be essential that you have a sufficiently fast internet connection to support a video call, as well as a headset. The use of Windows is required for the Delft3D courses. Online course dates Session 1: Tuesday, 21 March 2023, 09:00 PDT (12:00 EDT) until 13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT) Session 2: Thursday, 23 March 2023, 09:00 PDT (12:00 EDT) until 13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT) Session 3: Tuesday, 28 March 2023, 09:00 PDT (12:00 EDT) until 13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT) Session 4: Thursday, 30 March 2023, 09:00 PDT (12:00 EDT) until 13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT)
