Simulations of nutrient emissions from a net cage aquaculture system in a Brazilian bay

Matta, Elena ; Selge, Florian ; Gunkel, Günter ; Rossiter, Karina ; Jourieh, Ayman ; Hinkelmann, Reinhard (2016)

Hydrodynamics and transport simulations were conducted with the modeling software TELEMAC-2D on Icó-Mandantes bay, a branch of the Itaparica reservoir. The bay has a maximal operational water level amplitude of 5 m and is suffering from eutrophication and algae bloom. Therefore, we investigated low and high water level scenarios with two different high resolution meshes, with the purpose to dee...

Urban flood modeling using shallow water equations with depth-dependent anisotropic porosity

Özgen, Ilhan ; Zhao, Jiaheng ; Liang, Dongfang ; Hinkelmann, Reinhard (2016)

The shallow water model with anisotropic porosity conceptually takes into account the unresolved subgrid-scale features, e.g. microtopography or buildings. This enables computationally efficient simulations that can be run on coarser grids, whereas reasonable accuracy is maintained via the introduction of porosity. This article presents a novel numerical model for the depth-averaged equations w...

Shallow water equations with depth-dependent anisotropic porosity for subgrid-scale topography

Özgen, Ilhan ; Liang, Dongfang ; Hinkelmann, Reinhard (2016)

This paper derives a novel formulation of the depth-averaged shallow water equations with anisotropic porosity for computational efficiency reasons. The aim is to run simulations on coarser grids while maintaining an acceptable accuracy through the introduction of porosity terms, which account for subgrid-scale effects. The porosity is divided into volumetric and areal porosities, which are ass...

Upscaling the shallow water model with a novel roughness formulation

Özgen, Ilhan ; Teuber, Katharina ; Simons, Franz ; Liang, Dongfang ; Hinkelmann, Reinhard (2015-08)

This study presents a novel roughness formulation to conceptually account for microtopography and compares it to four existing roughness models from literature. The aim is to increase the grid size for computational efficiency, while capturing subgrid scale effects with the roughness formulation to prevent the loss in accuracy associated with coarse grids. All roughness approaches are implement...

Conceptual simplifications for long-term sediment transport simulations

Zhang, Qing (2018)

The aim of this PhD thesis is to assess the long-term evolution of the fine sediment budget in the Iffezheim reservoir, which is the last barrage of the impounded section of the Rhine River. Based on the observed flow and suspended sediment concentration as well as echo-sounding data, various methods were proposed to estimate long-term riverbed changes. The application of a high-resolution 3D m...

Multi-dimensional flow and transport modeling of a surface water body in a semi-arid area

Matta, Elena (2018)

Since approximately 2012, Northeast Brazil dramatically suffers from the harshest drought in the recent history, with serious consequences on water resources, anthropogenic uses and ecosystem services. Among else, the hydropower production, irrigation agriculture, water supply and net cage aquaculture are the principal uses adopted in the Itaparica Reservoir, located in the Sub-Middle São Franc...

Model-based design for restoration of a small urban river

Lange, Carsten ; Schneider, Matthias ; Mutz, Schneider ; Haustein, Martin ; Halle, Martin ; Seidel, Michael ; Sieker, Heiko ; Wolter, Christian ; Hinkelmann, Reinhard (2015)

A model-based design is presented for restoring the small urban river Panke located in Berlin, Germany. This new design process combines high resolution 2D hydraulic modeling with habitat modeling and river-ecological expert knowledge in a highly iterative way. Advances have been made for the habitat modeling: habitat suitability maps have been developed for fish and the habitat suitability for...

An efficient unstructured MUSCL scheme for solving the 2D shallow water equations

Hou, Jingming ; Liang, Qiuhua ; Zhang, Hongbin ; Hinkelmann, Reinhard (2015)

The aim of this paper is to present a novel monotone upstream scheme for conservation law (MUSCL) on unstructured grids. The novel edge-based MUSCL scheme is devised to construct the required values at the midpoint of cell edges in a more straightforward and effective way compared to other conventional approaches, by making better use of the geometrical property of the triangular grids. The sch...

Three-dimensional modeling of wind- and temperature-induced flows in the Icó-Mandantes Bay, Itaparica Reservoir, NE Brazil

Matta, Elena ; Selge, Florian ; Gunkel, Günter ; Hinkelmann, Reinhard (2017)

The Icó-Mandantes Bay is one of the major branches of the Itaparica Reservoir (Sub-Middle São Francisco River, Northeast Brazil) and is the focus of this study. Besides the harmful algae blooms (HAB) and a severe prolonged drought, the bay has a strategic importance—e.g., the eastern channel of the newly built water diversion will withdraw water from it (drinking water). This article presents t...
