intro story 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.

There is no one size fits all
Many information started afloat after many organizations announced WFH. Too many people have written information on do this, do that, don't do that and so on. Everyone writes from what they know and what has worked for them. It's okay to look up the information from them, but it isn't necessary to follow them as long as it works for you. What worked for them might not work for you. Try once to see if it works for you, if not learn from it. Find out what works for you and continue.I have seen in multiple blogs that people are saying that dress like you want to dress for work. Take a bath first, eat breakfast, do not wear pajama, do not work from the bedroom or on the bed, etc. I have seen and worked with people who feel very comfortable working on wearing comfortable wear and from the bed. They have produced better results too. So, take advice only as a piece of advice from those posts. Advanced CSM training online
