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.

My Journey to becoming a CST.
My Journey to becoming a CST.
 Understand your PurposeFor any venture you start, it is important to know the purpose behind it. “Why am I doing it?” “How would it help?”For me, it never started with becoming a CST. I had seen the benefits of using Scrum in my experiences and was heavily involved in community to spread the benefits of the same. My vision was always to help the people, to share my knowledge and learnings with others so that they too can reap the benefits of Scrum. While working with the community, I realised that there are lots of wrong sources of Scrum mushrooming in the industry and internet, which is causing a lot of harm. That’s when I made up my mind to make sure I can create that visibility and make people aware of the Spirit of Scrum.Once you have identified your purpose to becoming a CST, Commit to it. Don’t look around for shortcuts. Don’t get diverted looking for easier options – “So, what if I cannot become a CST, I will become some other trainer”. That’s not commitment and that would not get you anywhere. Devops Online Training
