Marked differences occur between modelling in scientific hydraulic research, in hydraulic engineering and in public decision making. This study reviews ifferences in the required accuracy of model results and differences in the choice between physical and numerical modelling. Physical models are used for studying elementary processes and their...

The flow velocities in tidal channels are already rather complex by the presence of various tidal components, wind driven flow and estuarine circulations. An extra level of complexity is introduced when the flow on top of an intertidal<br/>flat is considered (Le Hir, 2000). This research aims at understanding the complex flow patterns on top of...

River plumes, also regions of freshwater influence , are important features to understand because of their impact on the current structure, stratification and the transport of fine sediments, nutrients and contaminants. One important river plume is the Rhine ROFI. Prior studies have sought to understand far-field dynamics where cross-shore...
