Project WATERMAN - 3D EIA
The modeling and visualization technology of VISJET are further
developed into 3D environmental impact assessment (3D EIA) module of
Project WATERMAN, which aims to provide an online hydro-environmental
modeling and visualization system for public engagement in Hong Kong.
Entrainment Sink Approach (DESA)
VISJET can now be used to seamlessly model effluent mixing and transport
in the intermediate/far field!
VISJET is a general interactive computer modeling system that
predicts the impact of an effluent discharge into the water environment.
The model provides 3D flow visualization of the predicted path and mixing of an arbitrarily inclined buoyant plume in a moving receiving water which may be density-stratified. VISJET can be used to study the impact of either a single or a group of inclined buoyant jets in three-dimensional space. It can be used for outfall design, impact assessment and risk analysis of polluting or natural environmental discharges (e.g. deep sea hydrothermal vents). It can also be used as an educational tool to introduce concepts such as mixing and transport, and assimilative capacity of the receiving water.
VISJET 2.5 is officially released in August, 2009.
It is now coupled with the new JETLAG 2008 engine...
Since the release
of VISJET 1.5 in April 2001, we have received many valuable comments from
users who have downloaded and evaluated the software. VISJET
2.5 is a significantly improved and more powerful version
with enhanced features and user interface.
