Welcome to the learning project on Coastal Engineering/Modelling sea level rise!

Learning project summary[edit | edit source]

Content summary[edit | edit source]

This Learning Project will introduce students to the concept of hydrodynamic modelling and to the concepts of computer modelling as a visualization tool for understanding. The student(s) will select a computer modelling tool and use it to create a visualization of the impact of sea level rise on an area of coastline they are interested in.

Goals[edit | edit source]

In this learning project we aim to capture a section of coastline in a 3D model, apply hydrodynamic computational methods to that model and produce a visualization of what the impacts of sea level rise would look like.

Various Coastline Modelling tools[edit | edit source]


Various Computational Hydrodynamic Modelling tools[edit | edit source]

  • OpenTELEMAC [1] - A 3D hydrodynamics module, TELEMAC-3D, uses the same horizontally unstructured mesh as TELEMAC-2D but solves the Navier-Stokes equations.
  • Delft3D [2] - One of the most comprehensive 1D, 2D and 3D hydrodynamic modelling suites available, Delft3D has become open source.

Learning materials[edit | edit source]

Learning materials and learning projects are located in the main Wikiversity namespace (i.e. without any prefix such as 'Topic:' or 'School:'). Simply make a link to the name of the learning resource, lesson, or learning project (these are independent pages in the main namespace, and sometimes subpages when appropriate) and start writing!

You should also read about the Wikiversity:Learning model. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple projects - and you are encouraged to cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.
