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.

Best Resolutions for ScrumMaster

Best Resolutions for ScrumMasterNot be biased towards one solution to any problem.One of the key problems, I have faced in working with teams is that they rely on someone to make decisions or come up with solutions for them. In Product Backlog refinement, teams forget the fact that there are more ways to create a product backlog increment. The ability to come up with a solution depends on one’s experience and their own mental model. As a Scrum Master, I will have a firm belief that there are multiple ways to get the same job done and I will not be biased towards one solution. I will coach myself and the team to look for more efficient solutions for the problem at hand.
Make my team less dependent on me.As a Scrum Master, it’s one of the responsibilities to make the teams self-organizing. Team should be self-sufficient, self-facilitating and self-learning. They should be less dependent on the Scrum Master as they get matured. Encourage new ideas and passionate discussions within the team.Albert Einstein wisely said, “Doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results is insanity”. One has to find out alternate ways of doing everyday work to get different results. Scrum Master should promote workplace innovation. New ideas can be anything ranging from different way of doing things, new product feature, best practices, new products and so on. It also promotes healthy discussions in the team. <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Devops Online Training
