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.

 Leadership Expectations

 Leadership ExpectationsExplicit expectations: Leaders themselves express certain outcomes based on their role and job description. It could be something like strategy, execution, fiscal responsibility, and so on.Implicit expectations: These are the expectations that the stakeholders have on the leaders. The leaders rarely do understand the impact of these expectations and the effect that it has on their overall effectiveness. Some of them are commitment, engagement, listening, fair treatment, competence, being an inspiration, and so on.Leaders are assessed based on both implicit and explicit expectations. Even though the expectations at times are unrealistic, the leaders are expected to fulfill these expectations by the stakeholders and the followers. The majority of the time, these expectations are unrealistic. Because of their unrealistic nature, the leaders feel that they are set up to fail to lead to the failed efforts of fulfilling their promises. Leaders do succeed with the clarity and the expectations of their role. Organizations do succeed depending on their leaders fulfilling their promises on leadership.There was a survey conducted on identifying leaders who meet or exceed the expectations. People are asked to identify extraordinary leaders with whom they have worked with. People cannot identify more than one or two leaders as the bar for leadership is set too high. The expectations are set in such a way that only 5 to 10% of the leaders do meet them keeping the promises.One may wonder, why would someone become a leader keeping in mind these expectations. Coming to leadership, it is a responsibility. The responsibility is not straight forward and or affected by the increase in change, complexity, and connectivity. Life is in a complex domain and one cannot predict what may come. Leadership lies in accepting what had happened and working towards making it right. Take an example of the COVID situation, every nation’s leaders are expected to make decisions and things which are right for their people. Both implicit and explicit expectations are there and they will be unrealistic considering the situation at hand. Devops Online Training
