Best practices for using modeling applications for inland water sediment management
October 23, 2018 | 9AM-4PM | Lakewood, CO
Join us in Lakewood, Colorado for a single day hands-on course about the theoretical and practical aspects of cohesive and non-cohesive sediment transport modeling in rivers and reservoirs.
This is an intermediate level course for professionals who wish to enhance their skills to include cohesive and noncohesive sediment transport modeling of rivers and reservoirs. Participants are expected to have experience in 2D modeling either through experience or through participation in the MIKE 21 courses ‘MIKE 21 Flow Model HD – 2D hydrodynamic modeling using ‘classic’ grid’ or ‘MIKE 21 Flow Model HD FM – 2D hydrodynamic modeling using flexible mesh’.
MIKE 21 Curvilinear (MIKE 21C) consists of a curvilinear hydrodynamics module (CHD) and a sediment transport model (CST). A curvilinear grid generator is also available for preparation of the curvilinear grids for the simulations. MIKE 21C is one of the best established tools for simulating the development of the riverbed and channel plan form. Simulated processes include helical flow, sediment transport with inclusion of helical flow and bed slope for the bed-load and helical flow and adaptation for the suspended load via an advectiondispersion equation, as well as morphological updating including substrate. A separate module handles bank erosion with the possible inclusion of grid updating to account for bank line changes.
Dr. Ian Dubinski is a Senior Fluvial Geomorphologist and experienced modeler in fluvial systems, watershed applications, and sediment transport at DHI’s Denver office. He has project experience in hydrodynamic modeling, assessing historic changes in landscapes by rivers, dam breach flood analysis including nonNewtonian rheology, mining and tailings management, and is a seasoned GIS user and analyst.
