Tag: 3D Modeling
The road to river erosion and sedimentation predictions sometimes takes you through the world of sediment transport modeling. These days 2D hydraulic modeling often provides a simpler, less costly route to robust results.
By Matthew Hickox, PE Computational fluid dynamics (CFD), also known as three-dimensional (3D) hydraulic modeling, is a practical way to predict and visualize how water flows in real-world conditions – including in rivers, stormwater structures, and wastewater systems. CFD solves fundamental flow equations that describe how physical laws govern fluid motion. It also provides detail… Read More »
