Individuals: Thomas Bernard, Albrecht Gnauck, Marco Jacobi, Divas Karimanzira, Oliver Krol, Torsten Pfützenreuter, Buren Scharaw, Thomas Westerhoff

This publication presents crucial heritage wisdom at the improvement of model-based real-world suggestions within the box of keep watch over and determination making for water structures. It offers approach engineering tools for modelling floor water and groundwater assets in addition to water transportation structures (rivers, channels and pipelines). The versions in flip offer info on either the water volume (flow charges, water degrees) of floor water and groundwater and on water caliber. furthermore, tools for modelling and predicting water call for are defined. pattern functions of the types are awarded, resembling a water allocation selection help process for semi-arid areas, a multiple-criteria regulate version for run-of-river hydropower crops, and a offer community simulation for public services.

Example text

The dispersive component of the flux is small compared with the advective one. 2. The concentration of the substance considered is assumed to be uniform in the lateral and vertical directions. That means, the water body is assumed as well mixed. 3. The freshwater flow and the cross-sectional area may vary in space and time. 4. Sources and sinks of water ingredients are functions of time and space, and of its concentrations or functions of concentrations of other substances. 5. The terms of the general model equation for specific running water are determined by hydraulic and geomorphologic characteristics as well as by hydrological and meteorological and climatic conditions of the watershed.

It depends from the mass import into the control volume and the mass export out of the control volume, and from chemical and biological reactions within the control volume. The term “reactions” may be positive if the reaction contributes to the mass of an ingredient. Otherwise it will be negative. In the case of conservative substances the reaction term will be zero. If steady state processes are considered where dC/dt = 0, then no accumulation will take place within the water body. The output results from input and reactions: Output = input ± reactions.

1). The consideration of morphometry and complex hydrodynamic 26 T. Rauschenbach et al. processes within water bodies as well as the coupling of models with optimisation procedures led to powerful simulation models for water management during the period 1975–1985 [319]. With growing complexity of management tasks in river basins further theoretical and practical demands have been arisen for extensions of such models since 1985. Model-based environmental planning and decision making characterise this phase up to 1995 [181].
