Webinar: Tsunami and dam failure and non-Newtonian modelling
Wednesday, 15 September, 2021
Tsunami and dam failure and non-Newtonian modelling: Learn how to model these high shock situations with confidence.
Tsunamis and dam failures, whether Newtonian or non-Newtonian, result in extremely transient, dynamic hydraulic behaviour. Whilst all 2D solvers can produce seemingly convincing results, not all 2D solvers incorporate the numerical complexity required for extreme inundation hydraulic modelling.
Hydraulic modelling is not an art, it is an appropriate solution of the fluid flow equations to accurately represent the fluid flow physics being modelled. Understanding the appropriateness of the solution to your modelling is key to producing a reliable and meaningful result.
This webinar explores the challenges and needs for accurately modelling extreme hydraulic shocks such as tsunamis and dam failures, along with non-Newtonian flow situations. Benchmarking to theoretical, flume and real-world measurements is presented.
