Delft3D Flexible Mesh – River modelling
This course focuses on hydraulic behaviour in rivers. Following a stretch of the Dutch river Waal, we will cover the basic functionalities required in consulting projects.
On the first day of this course, you will learn how to set-up and work with a 2D hydrodynamic model Flexible Mesh. We will also address Real-Time Modelling of movable structures. On the second day of this course, we will give an introduction to modeling of river morphodynamics and sediment transport with Delft3D Flexible Mesh (in 2D).
At the end of this intensive course, you have made your own model and applied the advanced functionality of Delft3D FM, which you can use for future reference in your projects.
Day 1: 2D hydrodynamics
