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.

Why the water level keeps growing for ten years

I have done a hydrodynamic simulation for a lake for 10 years. The result is very strange : the water level keeps growing for ten years, from 10m to 160m. In general , the water level is 5m-20m. Can you help me solve the problems . thank you.

I would recommend looking closely at your boundary conditions for flow into and out of your lake. Perhaps if you provide some more information about your model (particularly the boundary conditions) people may be able to help you further.

There can be many reasons for the rising water level. For example, the water level in a lake changes depending on the amount of precipitation, the amount of evaporated water and the movement of tectonic plates, which lead to a change in the topography of the lake's bottom form. I think you should take advantage of the research paper writing service. Perhaps experts will be able to say something more accurately.
