Room: Mesa C, Hilton Santa Fe
Training Class Schedule
9:00 – 9:30
Why Model Flows in 3D?
Engineering methods commonly used for hydraulic design will be evaluated and their strengths and weakness identified. The benefits of using FLOW-3D in hydraulics design will be demonstrated.
9:30 – 10:00
Development of Rating Curves
The definition and use of different boundary conditions will be discussed, and a rating curve for a hydraulic structure will be developed.
10:00 – 10:45
Velocity mapping techniques, to determine the likelihood of sediment movement, will be introduced and used to assess the efficacy of different stream restoration schemes.
10:45 – 11:00 BREAK
11:00 – 12:00
Simulating Biological Processes
Chemical kinetics and scalar transport models will be used to simulate macronutrient balances in an ecosystem.
12:00 – 1:30 LUNCH
1:30 – 2:30
Simulating Mixing and Thermal Buoyancy in an Outfall Design
A CFD model of a thermal discharge will be constructed and the approach validated with the aid of the CORMIX computer program.
2:30 – 2:45
Forces on Structures
The approach used to calculate fluid forces on structures using FLOW-3D will be reviewed, and the method will be used to determine the proper ballasting of an underwater sensor array.
2:45 – 3:15
Stability of Floating Structures
The stability of floating structures will be studied using FLOW-3D’s General Moving Objects capability.
3:15 – 3:30 BREAK
Modeling Linear and Non-linear Waves
3:45 – 4:45
