Short Description of Functionality

Method

The three-dimensional finite difference / finite volume numerical model UNTRIM2 can be used to simulate flow and transport processes in different free-surface flow problems. In contrast to conventional finite difference methods UNTRIM2 is able to operate on an unstructured orthogonal grid. The bathymetry of the model domain can be described with higher resolution compared to the computational grid using sub grid technology.

Physical Processes

The following physical processes are currently taken into account by UnTRIM2:

  • reynoldsaveraged Navier-Stokes equations (RANS)
    • local acceleration (inertia)
    • advective acceleration
    • Coriolis acceleration
    • barotropic pressure gradient
    • baroclinic pressure gradient
    • hydrostatic or non-hydrostatic pressure
    • horizontal turbulent viscosity
    • vertical turbulent viscosity influenced by density stratification
    • bottom friction
    • wind friction
    • sources and sinks
    • bottom evolution
    • horizontal acceleration due to wave effects (by means of radiation stress)
    • morphodynamic bathymetry
    • body forces due to short waves
  • transport of substances
    • local rate of change of concentration
    • advective rate of change of concentration
    • optional flux limiter : Minmod, van Leer or Superbee
    • horizontal turbulent diffusivity
    • vertical turbulent diffusivity influenced by density stratification
    • settling of particles, deposition and erosion (for suspended sediments)
    • sources and sinks
    • sinks with immediate return inflow at a different location, with optional modification of inflow-temperature as well as -salinity
  • turbulence modelling
    • constant
    • mixing length (various parametrizations)
    • two-equation model (turbulent kinetic energy, generic length scale)

Primary Computational Results

  • free surface elevation
  • bottom bathymetry and bed evolution rate
  • current velocity
  • concentration of substances (salinity, temperature, suspended load, tracers)
  • turbulent kinetic energy and turbulent length scale
  • hydrodynamic pressure
