Ecohydraulics

Integration of Mathematical Models and Assimilation of Samples on Ecohydraulics Applications at Different Spatial and Temporal Scales

  • Species in fresh water environments: biology, chemistry and transport
    • Nutrient dynamics (at different scales)
    • Zero-dimensions (0D)
    • Multi-physics modeling (2D-3D): OpenFOAM & FLUENT (What are the main processes that enhance nitrogen removal?)
    • Water-sediment interface influence on nitrogen removal

This area of research considered a zero dimensional approach to study mass transport in fresh-water environments. Such models are used to understand relation between processes that affect the mass transfer of species. The results can be later incorporate in more sophisticated models (e.g. 2D or 3D species transport).
