Hydraulic Engineering

The FLOW-3D CFD software is ideally suited to the modelling of transient free surface flows and has found wide application in the water and environmental industries. The difficulties of conducting well scaled experiments of environmental scale phenomena and the advantages of making well informed decisions when the costs of large scale civil engineering works are taken into account make CFD modelling an attractive option.

Complex bathymetry of river beds and basins can be used to provide geometric boundaries and realistic hydraulic boundary conditions are applied including for example tidal forcing in estuaries. A hybrid 3D/shallow water model can be used for shallow water applications.

The power and breadth of modelling capability is simply astonishing and includes the following applications. Call or email us with a description of your case for appraisal.
