FINEL2D animations

Morphodynamic calculations Haringvliet Estuary

Svašek Hydraulics was asked to determine the morphological developments in the entrance of the Haringvliet by morphodynamic modelling. The animation shows the seabed changes from 1970 to 1986.

The basis of the calculations is a morphological tidal cycle. For each year various wave conditions and sluice discharges from the Haringvlietsluizen were taken into account.

For the modelling FINEL2D (hydrodynamic modelling), SWAN (wave propagation, growth and breaking) and MORFIN (morphodynamic modelling of sand, silt and sand/silt interaction) was applied.
