Course detail

Mathematical modelling

FAST-DR74Acad. year: 2017/2018

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.
