Participants are introduced to numerical modeling techniques in the field of hydraulic and coastal engineering from a practical point of view. Process chain from data acquisition, filtering, model set-up, calibration and verification to final scenario simulation is trained in theoretical and practical units. Practical units are linked with basic theoretical background covering Navier-Stokes equation, wave action balance equation, advection-diffusion equation and Boussinesq-equation.
Participants are trained in basics of and insight into general open channel flows (Dr. Goseberg) and ground water hydraulics (Prof. Neuweiler, LUH). Students are taught to apply theoretical basics to relevant questions in the field of civil and environmental engineering. Description of basic flow problems along with simplified hydro-numerical solution strategies is covered
Participants acquire basic understanding about hydraulic and coastal engineering. Students are introduced to basic design concepts within environments such as rivers, estuaries or coastlines. Participants are enabled to reach environmental friendly and sustainable solutions in regard to hydrological, hydro-power or navigable waterway issues; they learn to design (counter-)measures at rivers, navigable waters, harbors as well as in the context of inland or coastal flood protection.
