    Delft3D Basic Course Sedim…

    26-28 Oct

Delft3D 4 – Modelling sediment transport and bed dynamics (Block 2b)
 
To simulate the evolution of random, short-crested wind generated waves in coastal waters (which may include estuaries, tidal inlets, barrier islands with tidal flats, channels etc.) the wave module Delft3D-WAVE of the Delft3D 4 Suite can be used. This wave module computes wave propagation, wave generation by wind, non-linear wave-wave interactions and dissipation, for a given bottom topography, wind field, water level and current field in waters of deep, intermediate and finite depth.
 
The sediment transport module of Delft3D-FLOW integrates the effects of waves, currents, sediment transport on morphological development, related to sediment sizes ranging from silt to gravel. It is designed to simulate the morphodynamic behavior of rivers, estuaries and coasts on time-scales of days to years. The typical problems to be studied using the morphological module involve complex interactions between waves, currents, sediment transport and bathymetry. To allow such interactions, the individual modules within Delft3D all interact through a well-defined common interface.
 
This 3-day course will give you an introduction into setting up and running a simple wave, wave-current, morphology and wave-current-morphology simulation.

Delft3D Flexible Mesh – Environmental modelling
 
Environmental modelling is based on the transport of substances in surface and ground water using the so-called advection-diffusion equation.
The water quality module D-Water Quality of the Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite is based on this equation and it offers different computational methods to solve it numerically on an arbitrary irregular 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 cohesive and non-cohesive sediments, i.e. to study the spreading of dredged materials, to study sedimentation/erosion patterns and to carry out water quality and ecology studies where sediment is the dominant factor. 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.
 
This 3-day course will give you an introduction into setting up and running a water quality, an ecological, particle tracking as well as oil disposal simulations.

    Webinar ‘Hydrodynamic model…'

    20 June

Deltares is pleased to announce that Mr. Firmijn Zijl, senior researcher, and Mr. Erik de Goede, senior consultant, Deltares, will present the following webinar:
 
Monday, 20 June 2016 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM CEST
Show in My Time Zone 
 
In this webinar we will focus on the continuous development and improvements in the operational tide-surge models of the Northwest European Shelf and in particular the North Sea and adjacent shallow seas and estuaries. For the Netherlands, accurate water-level forecasting in the coastal region is crucial, since large areas of the land lie below sea level. The importance of providing precise and reliable warnings is only enhanced by the presence of movable barriers such as the Eastern Scheldt Barrier and the Maeslant Barrier in the Rotterdam Waterway, which require the decision to close to be taken in advance and only when strictly necessary.
 
In the past years a new generation tide-surge model (Dutch Continental Shelf Model version 6) has been developed covering the northwest European continental shelf, with a uniform cell size of about 1×1 nautical miles. During the model development many potential sources of error have been addressed, in particular through the use of parameter estimation techniques to decrease uncertainty in time-independent parameters. While this model has a tide representation that is substantially better than comparable models of this scale, increased model resolution in coastal regions (such as the Dutch estuaries and shallow seas like the Wadden Sea) is essential for improving the representation of higher harmonics and non-linear tide–surge interaction there. In addition a steady-state Kalman filter has been implemented to increase the predictive quality for the shorter lead times (up to approximately 12 h).
We will show that Delft3D Flexible Mesh (Delft3D FM) produces accurate model results. In addition, developments and opportunities made possible by Delft3D FM are discussed. For example, by making use of the new flexibility that the unstructured grid allows, we have optimized the grid. This significantly reduces the computation time, while the accuracy remains of the same order. Finally, we will discuss on-going research including the development of a 3D transport model for the same area and a possibly baroclinically induced annual modulation of the M2 tide.
 
During the webinar, we have a panel of experts available to answer questions received via text. After the webinar presentation, there is an opportunity to ask verbal questions to the presenters.

    Webinar ‘Delft3D Phytoplankton …'

    17 Mar

Deltares is pleased to announce that Dr. Hans Los, Specialist Ecology and Water Quality, Deltares, will present the webinar ‘Delft3D Phytoplankton modelling: Concepts of BLOOM’ on Thursday, 17 March 2016, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CET (5:00 PM - 6:00 PM SGT).
 
Natural phytoplankton communities usually consist of many different species with distinct characteristics. Moreover several species may have a negative impact on the aquatic ecosystem or its user function for instance due to the production of toxins. 
The BLOOM phytoplankton model was specifically designed to simulate the competition of functional groups or individual species for potentially limiting resources (nutrients; light). The underlying assumption is that functional groups may become dominant either due to a high growth rate or due to a low resource requirement. Unlike in most other phytoplankton models, individual characteristics vary as a function of external conditions (variable stoichiometry). 
In addition to phytoplankton, BLOOM can also handle macro and benthic algae. The model has a very long track record of well over 35 years with application worldwide under highly diverse conditions including fresh, marine and transitional waters. Its concepts and many applications have been documented in a large number of scientific papers and reports.
 
During the webinar, we have a panel of experts available to answer questions received via text. After the webinar presentation, there is an opportunity to ask verbal questions to the presenters.

Delft3D Basic Course Hydrodynamic modelling in Delft3D 4 (Block 1)

The hydrodynamic module Delft3D-FLOW is a multidimensional hydrodynamic simulation program that calculates non-steady flow and transport phenomena resulting from tidal and meteorological forcing on a curvilinear, boundary-fitted grid. In 3D simulations, the hydrodynamic module applies the so-called sigma co-ordinate transformation in the vertical, which results in a smooth representation of the bottom topography. It also results in a high computing efficiency because of the constant number of vertical layers over the whole computational domain.
The hydrodynamic module is based on the full Navier-Stokes equations with the shallow water approximation applied. The equations are solved with a highly accurate unconditionally stable solution procedure.
