intro story Lake


Lakes and reservoirs are important resources for communities around the globe. They provide food, drinking and irrigation water and can also offer spots for recreation. Under certain conditions lakes can also represent a threat for local communities, such as flooding or limnic eruptions. The ecological state of shallow lakes may be hampered by suspended sediments due to wind driven currents and waves. In deep lakes, stratification can cause undesirable anoxic conditions in the deeper areas. Understanding these systems is crucial to enable a sound management of these water bodies.

Delft3D is the state-of-the-art modelling framework for hydrodynamics, water quality, ecology, waves and morphology.
Here, in this space, we share knowledge & experiences, and discuss issues related to modelling of lakes.

  • dispersion of radionuclides

    Dear all, I'm beginner in DELFT 3D and I'm working on the dispersion of radionuclides. Please help me with the following issues. 1- Regarding the “DELWAQ” module, is it reasonable to study the dispersion of conservative radionuclide (which their transport equation is mainly the advection-diffusion Eq.) via coupling a transport code to DELFT 3D? or does DELFT have the ability to do such a simulation by itself? 2- If the coupling is reasonable, is it possible to define the advection-diffusion Eq. by means of a UDF and using its variables or is it doable trough the source code of DELFT? Is there a complete access to the source of the code? 3- By using UDF for this purpose, is it necessary to define certain kind of input data for UDF? or do we only use the computed current data from DELFT as input data for transport calculations in the UDF? Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
