SSIIM - A Three-dimensional Numerical Model For Simulation Of Water And Sediment Flow
Free (open access)
SSIIM is an abbreviation for Sediment Simulation In Intakes with Multiblock option. The model simulates water and sediment movement in a complex three-dimensional geometry. SSIIM is based on the solution of the Navier- Stokes equations, with the k-e model. This gives the water velocity and turbulence field which is used for solving the convection-diffusion equation for the sediment concentration. The model has a graphical user interface with pre and post processors. The program uses a standard graphical user interface for OS/2 and runs only on this operating system. This paper shows several examples where the program has been used. 1 Introduction The initial motivation for making SSIIM was the limited possibilities of determining the flow of finer sediment particles in a complex geometry.
