intro story DELWAQ

DELWAQ

DELWAQ is the engine of the D-Water Quality and D-Ecology programmes of the Delft3D suite. It is based on a rich library from which relevant substances and processes can be selected to quickly put water and sediment quality models together.

The processes library covers many aspects of water quality and ecology, from basic tracers, dissolved oxygen, nutrients, organic matter, inorganic suspended matter, heavy metals, bacteria and organic micro-pollutants, to complex algae and macrophyte dynamics. High performance solvers enable the simulation of long periods, often required to capture the full cycles of the processes being modelled.

The finite volume approach underlying DELWAQ allows it to be coupled to both the structured grid hydrodynamics of the current Delft3D-FLOW engine and the upcoming D-Flow Flexible Mesh engine (1D-2D-3D) of the Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite (or even other models such as TELEMAC).

'DELWAQ in open source' is our invitation to all leading experts to collaborate in further development and research in the field of water quality, ecology and morphology using Delft3D. Feel free to post your DELWAQ related questions or comments in this dedicated forum space. If you are new to DELWAQ, the tutorial (in the user manual) is a good place to start. A list of DELWAQ related publications is available here.

Difficulty with transport boundary conditions: free outlet

Difficulty with transport boundary conditions: free outlet

Youngling Posts: 2 Join Date: 9/9/15 Recent Posts
Dear All,

I have some difficulty with open boundary conditions in case of transport processes. I have a lake with 2 open boundaries: an inflow (total discharge) and an outflow (water level). I know the concentration at the inflow, but I have no information about it near the outflow. I would like to adjust an open boundary with free outflow, without adding any transport boundary condition. I tried to adjust zero concentration for outflow, but it reversed back on the domain. I also tried to use the Thatcher-Harleman lag, though this function was not designed for this kind of condition, but it didn’t solve the problem either. As the exact concentration near the outflow is very important to me, I am looking for a way to overcome this problem. Does an option exist in Delft3D-Flow which provides free outflow for transport, or could you suggest me any other method to fix this problem?

Thank you in advance,

Adrián Csibrán

Dear All,

The answer for my question can be found in the Flow Manual, I have not noticed it before. In case someone would face a similar problem:
„When you specify a negative value for the time lag (Thatcher and Harleman time lag) the boundary treatment for constituents, salinity and temperature will be the same as at outflow, but now for all times. Thus, the solution for these parameters will be fully determined by the processes inside the model area. „

Best regards,

Hello and thank you for your helpful solution about outflow!

I have more or less the same issue with modeling of salinity intrusion into an estuary.

The problem is that I have to define a constant salinity at the mouth of the estuary. During the flood tide, there is no problem and the saline tides intrude into the estuary from the bay. But the issue is that during ebb tide, the free outflows should be flushed out from the estuary into the bay/ocean. But the fixed constant value for the salinity (let say 30 ppt) does not allow us to have a free outflow with real salinity. In the other word, the salinity value at the mouth is confined to be constant and does not change freely, while I expect to have less saline ebb tides at the mouth.

I highly appreciate if anybody can help with comments.

An outflow boundary, also known as a gust front, is a storm-scale or mesoscale boundary separating thunderstorm-cooled air (outflow) from the surrounding air; similar in effect to a cold front, with passage marked by a wind shift and usually a drop in temperature and a related pressure jump dqfanfeedback

I and my friends were going through the nice, helpful tips from the blog then the sudden came up with an awful suspicion I never expressed respect to the website owner for those secrets.  https://www.softlogicsys.in/datascience-training-in-chennai/
