A Decade of Changes in Infrastructure Design

With another decade in the books – and a new one starting up – it’s time to look back on some of the most interesting questions in the architecture/engineering world that technology has answered in the last 10 years. What Will the Finished Project Look Like? How can most people (who aren’t engineers or professional… Read More »

What is Computational Fluid Dynamics/3D Hydraulic Modeling?

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 »
