Course description

Students acquire advanced knowledge of numerical methods for solving flow and transport processes in channels and in groundwater. A key aspect of the class is to teach students about modelling processes using real-life engineering projects in the field of water resources management. Furthermore students are encouraged to apply numerical methods independently using conventional numerical simulation software in the area of water resources management and mapping complex domains.

Course content

  • basics
  • discretization of flow equations
  • solving methods
  • theory of modelling
  • practical exercise with commercial simulation software,
  • model design
  • model calibration,
  • display of results
  • interpretation and presentation of results

Learning Objectives

Students acquire advanced knowledge of numerical methods for solving flow and transport processes in channels and in groundwater. A key aspect is to obtain understanding of modelling processes using real-life engineering projects in the field of water resource management. Furthermore students are encouraged to apply numerical methods independently using conventional numerical simulation software in the area of resource management and mapping complex domains. Learning objective of the course is the practical application of numerical simulation software as a preparation for engineering practice. The course supports both individual and group-related work in order to encourage problem-solving competence. Hereby an opportunity for self-assessment is given to the students.
