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.

Intuition Power

Intuition PowerWhat is intelligence? Intelligence is the ability to receive and process information. Can intelligence be developed? How intelligent were you when you were young? How intelligent are you now? Yes, it can be developed. Intuition can be developed to perfection over a period of time and that's why it is called intuitive intelligence.Not to mention, intuition is highly logical and is purely analytical. How do I know if my intuition is right? You don’t. Do not run behind and spend more time in validating your intuition. It’s just a hunch that you get, use that awareness to your benefit.The brain is a supercomputer of supercomputers and it keeps learning and learning.  Predictions are based on a bunch of formulae but they aren't right from the first. They learn, tweak and change every now and then based on the validation of intuition. The process of letting the intuition out of validation is called blurting. Whenever you have an intuition, you should let it out. If it involves other people, you should ask them if your intuition is correct. Blurting helps you in coming up with correct intuitions. The perfect formulae are created by lots of tweaking. Devops Online Training
