Advanced Hydraulic Modeling in 2D and 3D (CFD)
2.0 PDHs for Professional Engineers
The use of 2D hydraulic modeling and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is becoming more widespread in engineering practice with the availability of better commercially available software packages and substantial increases in personal computer’s computational power. This presentation will provide a brief technical description of 2D and CFD modeling, and will showcase how 2D and CFD hydraulic modeling can be used to solve practical and regulatory problems. Case studies ranging from flood mapping using 2D modeling to high-end hydraulic modeling of a turbine using CFD.
