Simulation Modeling of Hydrodynamic Systems


Managing water use in riverine and estuarine systems requires an understanding of the governing supply, circulation, mixing, and flushing processes. Qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the hydrodynamic and transport properties of such water bodies can be computed via mathematical/numerical simulation models. To accurately simulate both the temporal and spatial variations of the flow, which significantly define the transport processes, the simulation model must be capable of accounting for hydraulic and tide-induced fluctuations, water withdrawals, discharges, winds, nonuniform geometric configurations, and other manmade or natural factors. Objectives of this project are to investigate and develop various mathematical/numerical [...]
