FINEL (Finite Elements)

Svašek Hydraulics



FINEL2D is capable of calculating morphological changes in different types of water systems. Experience has been gained in estuaries, seas, delta’s, rivers and coasts.Each type of water system has its own specific set of physical processes that need to be accounted for.

For example the morphology of coasts require wave input for a good morphological model (see Waves). In sheltered estuaries this is less important and the combination of both sand and mud is important for a good representation of morphological changes (see Sand-mud interaction).

Some examples of FINEL2D morphology can be found in the right hand panel.
