RLR_SS4 | PARAMETERS IDENTIFICATION FOR MODELS OF HEAT AND MASS TRANSPORT IN AQUATIC ENVIRONMENT
Rivers, Lakes and Reservoirs (RLR)
Short description on the session:
This thematic session will cover different aspects of heat and mass transport under various flow conditions and geometrical setups. Special emphasis will be put on the parameters used to describe mixing processes, including recommendations and problems related to their determination, constraints and parametric uncertainty. These parameters, such as dispersion coefficients or heat exchange terms, are crucial for the reliable prediction of the transport processes. However, they are not directly measurable and their estimates are burdened with large possible errors. They not only depend on the flow conditions but also the complexity of channel geometry and the possible presence of vegetation in the channel.
The session aims to present, discuss, and summarise the information, current knowledge, and further research directions related to identifying and interpreting model parameters with respect to different time and space scales. Presentations may include laboratory, semi-laboratory and natural conditions, non-vegetated and vegetated channels, and models ranging from one to three-dimensional cases. Methods of parameters identification may vary from application of simple algebraic formulae towards complex computational approaches.
We welcome contributions based on experimental, theoretical or computational studies, from fundamental research to practical engineering challenges related to the abovementioned problems.
