Flooding and its effects in the model

Extreme runoff in alpine areas – triggers are e.g. heavy rainfall events and the resulting increased surface runoff, and small catchments with steep slopes. The animation shows which torrent control structures are possible in alpine areas in order to reduce the risk of flooding.

Many thanks to Roland Hollenstein for the discussions on the topic (https://www.nrpag.ch/)

The virtual regional model was created using 3ds max 2018, and the fluid simulation was calculated using the CFD plug-in PhoenixFD.

The size of the regional model area is 250 cm x 250 cm, polygon count of the model: 199,056, render engine Vray 4.0 Next, dimensions of the computational grid: 241 cm x 241 cm, number of grid elements: 9.879.552, determination of velocity (v), foam, splash, wetmaps, open discharge conditions (no build-up within the system).
Duration of animation 40 seconds.

The regional model was created as part of a test series for various fluid solvers in 3ds max using PhoenixFD.
