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.

Self-OrganizingIn Scrum, the Development Team will decide how to create a working product increment. Neither the Scrum Master nor the Product Owner can tell the team on how to come up with a "done" increment. Since they are cross-functional and expert in development, they decide what needs to be done for developing a PBI.Self-Organizing also means that the teams are autonomous. They are not dependent on others. Micro-Management will not work on autonomous teams. Teams will have goals, and they will do anything and everything to reach the goal. They will decide what to learn, how to do their job better and so on. They are efficient and able teams.Self-Organizing teams are also called self-learning, self-managing, and self-facilitating teams. They are self-sufficient and are capable enough to do their job better. They learn from their mistakes, and they learn continuously. They continuously inspect and adapt and create a culture within themselves. Product Prototyping
