Mathematical modelling in water management

Academic Year 2022/23

DRB025 course is part of 4 study plans

DPC-V Summer Semester 1st year

DKC-V Summer Semester 1st year

DKA-V Summer Semester 1st year

DPA-V Summer Semester 1st year

The course deals with the development of mathematical model in water management. Initially the elementary principles of modelling are introduced together with conceptual and mathematical model development. The problems solved are flow and transport of solids in streams and floodplain, groundwater flow and pollution, flow in reservoirs and hydrotechnical structures.
The part of the subject concerns the use of appropriate software for numerical solution of the problem. Practical studies are focused on the problems connected with PhD. thesis.
