==Short Description==
The mathematical model TRIM-2D is based on the finite difference method. TRIM-2D was designed to solve several depth-integrated transient nonlinear partial differential equations (pde's). The model is actually used to study one ore more of the following physical processes:
# transport of water (conservation of the water mass)
[[Information about the Vertical Velocity Profile|Information about the Vertical Velocity Profile Applet]] (only in english)
# transport of linear momentum (conservation of linear momentum)
# transport of salinity (conservation of the dissolved salt mass)

# transport of suspended sediments with consideration of resuspension and deposition at the bottom (conservation of the suspended sediment mass)
# bed load transport (a transport capacity approach is used)
# evolution of the bottom (morphodynamics) due to suspended load as well as bed load transport
TRIM-2D was jointly developed by Prof. V. Casulli (Trento University, Italy) as well as Prof. R. T. Cheng (US Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California). In the framework of a scientific cooperation TRIM-2D has been successfully installed in the year 1994 at BAW-DHs computers. It has been integrated into BAW-DHs numerical modelling toolbox and is now used on a routine basis in the context of different real-world projects concerning estuarine flow and transport processes. Meanwhile the capabilities of the model were extended and new physical processes have been included.
Furthermore the program was parallelized using [ OpenMP]-directives for SMP ([ symmetric multiprocessing]) systems in a portable way.
==Standard Validation Document==
There exists a Standard Validation Document (in German only) for TRIM-2D which provides the potential user with information about the capabilities and limitations of the model. This document may be downloaded either as [ PDF-Version] ( 2.1M) or as a compressed PostScript-Version  ( 2.9M).
