New frontier in 3D turbulent flow modellingOctober 2014
TUDFlow3d is a fully 3 dimensional numerical flow solver which can give detailed turbulent results on engineering scale. Density currents can be solved, for example warm/cold water outlets, salinity flows, sediment transport.
TUDFlow3d has been applied successfully for sediment plumes from a moving dredging vessel, tailing plumes near the seabed, salinity plume in a crossflow, turbulent channel flow and density currents with and without deposition.
TUDFlow3d is developed by TU Delft and Svašek Hydraulics.
Successful parallelisation of FINEL3DOctober 2014
In May 2014, FINEL3D (the in-house 3D Finite Element model of Svašek Hydraulics) has been successfully parallelised. This has resulted in a significant acceleration of the model and a reduction of the computational time by a factor 5 to 15. A practical limit for the number of elements in 3D model simulations is now enlarged from approximately 200.000 to around one million.
The parallelised version of FINEL3D has been applied recently to a numerical model of the entire Western Scheldt, including a large adjacent part of the North Sea. At this moment a large-scale FINEL3D model of the Dutch river delta, including the Port of Rotterdam, is being built. Parallellised FINEL3D is presently applied as well to detailed short-wave simulations in the Fehmarnbelt (between Denmark and Germany).
Successful audit ISO 9001:2008October 2014
The Quality Management System of Svašek Hydraulics was successfully audited to the Standards of NEN-EN-ISO 9001:2008 by Lloyds's Register Quality Assurance .
Svašek Hydraulics develops South East Asia ModelSeptember 2014
After the successful launch of the European Continental Shelf Model and the American East Coast Model, Svašek Hydraulics has now developed the South East Asian Model (SEAM). The SEAM provides high quality tidal data for the Gulf of Thailand, Java Sea and the Strait of Malacca using numerical flow simulation software FINEL2D.
The SEAM fits many different purposes. Its water level and current forecasts can serve as input for e.g. ship routing or workability predictions.
