Three Decades Of Development And Application Of Numerical Simulation Tools At Ina Hydraulics Lab

Angel N. Menéndez


The main lines of work on numerical simulation at INA Hydraulics Lab during its
three decades of existence are briefly reviewed. They are rooted in four main subjects:
hydrodynamics, sediment dynamics, pollutant dynamics and heat dynamics. Software
development and applications are also mentioned. It is emphasized that these lines of work
are problem-driven, i.e. they are defined by the practical requirements of the social media.
This policy has led to participation in a variety of studies of significant social impact, which
are briefly mentioned. The present lines of work are not only directed to the use of more
sophisticated techniques, but also to exploit existing tools in order to provide results ready to
be used for long-range planning by decision-makers.
