Modelling Rivers

River

Rivers are natural water courses. They have vital contributions to the social and economical welfare of societies living along their course. They provide continuous, usually dependable, flow and supply of water. Accordingly, centralised civilisation began emerging independently along number of river valleys; e.g. the Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, the Indus and the Yellow Rivers. Since then, mankind has been in continuous struggle to understand and live in harmony with this gift/force of nature. Modelling rivers is the modern way to understand their behaviour and is an essential tool to tackle several river problems.

Delft3D is the state-of-the-art modelling framework for hydrodynamics, water quality, ecology, waves and morphology.

  • 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.
