Hydraulic models benchmarking

AfDB: Banca Africana di Sviluppo; BID: Banca Interamericana di Sviluppo; BM: Banca Mondiale; UE: Unione Europea

BETA Studio carries out with continuity tests on models, in particular hydraulic, hydrological, structural models.
The methodology is based on the following:

  • Use of different models to specific cases that need further study, notably by study area, specific required analysis;
  •   Use of same boundary and geometric conditions;
  •   Analysis of calibration parameters;
  •   Analysis of software’s potentialities;
  •   Comparison of numerical results and computation time.

The different case studies include:

  • Comparison of different 2D hydraulic models;
  •  Modelling of river estuaries, using river and maritime hydraulic models;
  •   Comparison of river hydraulic models, considering or not morphological modifications of the riverbed;
  •   Detailed numerical analysis of hydraulic structures, comparing model’s and theoretical solution.
