This webinar builds on the previous webinars, Coastal Modelling 101 (May 2021) and 3D Coastal Modelling (March 2022). Many situations can benefit from water quality modelling to inform decision making. Some examples include, port developments requiring dredging and dredge spoil disposal, desalination plant or wastewater treatment plant effluent ocean outfalls, invasive aquatic species investigations, grounded ships leaking toxic material and more.
What is the likely transport of contaminants under different meteorological, tide and ocean conditions? Do we expect environmentally sensitive areas to be affected? Can we improve our project design, monitoring, operation, or maintenance to minimise potential impacts? These are a small, but important sample of common environmental and water quality questions that we as scientists, engineers, researchers, managers, and regulators face on a regular basis when working in the coastal zone.
1D pipe network / 2D above-ground modelling is common for urban flood risk and infrastructure design assessments. This webinar discusses the key 1D hydraulic calculations needed to replicate real-world flow behaviour. It also demonstrates automated GIS tools for data quality control review and error correction tasks.
Stationary water bodies exhibit unique physical behaviours, such as seasonal stratification and episodic turnover mixing. This webinar demonstrates hydraulic modelling of these complex physical behaviours. Learn about some common mistakes and gain various tips for your modelling.
This webinar explores the challenges and needs for accurately modelling extreme hydraulic shocks such as tsunamis and dam failures, along with non-Newtonian flow situations. Benchmarking to theoretical, flume and real-world measurements is presented.
Learn about the various aspects of hydraulic model calibration. Verification data types, reliability and quality control, useful model update practices to achieve accurate simulation results and also common result reporting considerations and approaches.
The use of smart particles that dynamically respond to environmental forcing and modify water quality is now possible. Learn how this capability can be exploited to better understand and manage aquaculture operations, and how GPU based computation can accelerate water quality simulation projects.
We discuss the accuracy of direct rainfall modelling based on benchmarking and calibration to historic data sets, and how new features in TUFLOW’s 2020 release have substantially overcome previous shortcomings of 2D hydraulic solvers for rain-on-grid modelling.
One size does not fit all. Hydraulic models need to be designed to suit the site-specific topography, hydrology and also study purpose. Chris Huxley leads this webinar stepping through a best practice workflow to guide your 2D hydraulic model design and build.
Greg Collecutt discusses how new generations of computer hardware favour certain hydraulic solution schemes and offer lower solution costs. Learn how and why current GPU technology can offer significantly lower costs per solution than CPU hardware.
Hear from Bill Syme, the original author of TUFLOW with over 30 years practical experience, as he discusses how new computational methods are increasing simulation speeds and analysis accuracy. Learn of the latest and greatest advancements, and the research that has underpinned TUFLOW’s 2020 release.
All models are wrong to some degree. If so, how wrong is the model and how do we as an industry quantify wrong? Where is the evidence base that a model is right? Watch as Bill Syme draws upon his 30 years experience in applying and developing hydraulic models.
