Chair Astrid Blom (Delft University of Technology)
 

Description

On this day, we will focus on River Morphodynamics. Topics may include nature-based engineering for river restoration, river-bank erosion, bars, meandering, braiding, bifurcations, avulsions and vegetation.

4-day Delft3D - User Days 2019
The Delft3D - User Days during the Delft Software Days (DSD-INT 2019) provide a unique venue for all Delft3D FM, Delft3D 4, SOBEK and XBeach users and developers worldwide to present the latest applications, new scientific insights in modelling, the open source developments and our latest services. Other topics that might be of interest to you:

DAY 1: Hydrology and hydrodynamics (river, rural and urban), including 1D2D flood modelling
DAY 2: Hydrodynamics (ocean, coastal, estuarine and lake)
DAY 3b: Coastal morphodynamics
DAY 4: Water quality and ecology
