Modelling Rivers


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.
Here, in this space, we share knowledge & experiences, and discuss issues related to modelling of rivers.

The question about nested

I created a coupled flow and wave model, and I made a nested model from it. First I get the flow boundaries of water level from the model of large domain, I don't know
if I need to add wave height got from the model of large domain to the nested model boundary, or if I also need to make nesting in wave module?
