CWRA 2018 Workshops

FLOW 3D - 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

CFD modeling of fishway passages and river hydraulics (Flow 3D)

Date: May 28, 2018

Cost: $100

Location / Time: Ballroom B 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Combine: Flow 3D and R Workshop $175 / $140 Student

Presented by:

Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) tools such as FLOW-3D allow for sophisticated, fully three dimensional analyses of the flow running through fishway passages, capturing the detail of complex free surface flow fields. This workshop will first present how these modeling and visualization tools can be deployed on a variety of fishway scales and configuration, and then walk attendees through a series of hands-on "A-Z" exercises designed to build familiarity with the user interface and modeling steps required for creating successful fishway passage models. Advance post-processing using the tool FlowSight is also covered in a hands-on fashion.

All attendees will be provided a license and installation instructions for the CFD tool FLOW-3D two weeks prior to the workshop, in order to install the software on their laptops. Attendees will also be provided an additional one month license extension after the training in order to consolidate gains. Attendees will need to bring their laptops to the workshop in order to run the hands-on exercises.

Hardware requirements:

  • windows laptop vs 7 or later
  • 2Gb memory
  • a mouse is required in order to navigate the FLOW-3D interface smoothly.
