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.

Defining Neuman BC based on offshore forcing

Defining Neuman BC based on offshore forcing

Youngling Posts: 6 Join Date: 3/31/13 Recent Posts

Dear everyone,

I want to simulate tidal propagation at my domain that has three open boundaries. I want to use water level boundary for north boundary and Neumann BC for the west and east boundary. But I don't know how to specify the gradient of waterlevel. I have tried to set the gradient time series as 0, but in cophase plot, it doesn't show propagation. Would you please give some advice and may be the example of calculation Neumann BC based on offshore forcing. Thanks a lot.

Hi Hani,

Did you find a solution how to define Neumann BC correctly? I have almost a similar issue.

Thanks,

Vahid
