A Coupled Finite Element Framework for Multi-Physics Environmental Flows

Project description

Improved modelling of environmental flows using a coupled finite element framework

Increasing pressure on water resources is threatening water security and aquatic ecosystems. Environmental flows or e-flows is a relatively new concept focused on the allocation of water for economic benefit and sustainability, with emphasis on overland and riverine flows. Many approximations of the multiphysics processes use two or more models that treat the processes separately. Recently, monolithically coupled methods where all models are approximated simultaneously have gained attention. With support from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the HYDROCOUPLE project will extend these methods to environmental flow problems and develop a finite element framework for their numerical approximation, with applicability to flood prediction and hydropower production planning as well. Its efficiency and accuracy will be demonstrated to industry and government end users.
