Abstract:

We propose to develop a computational model and associated software library to calculate the transport and dispersion (T&D) of hazardous materials into and through the water. The model is developed for incorporation into HPAC and will compliment its existing atmospheric T&D model for CBRN (including toxic industrial substances) releases. We will investigate existing T&D models including those developed by Arete for other DoD programs and develop prototype algorithms for (initially) a 2-D waterborne transport module. The computational algorithm developed will emphasize the balance between accuracy and speed so that it will be useful within the HPAC framework. The model will incorporate various databases where available and be sufficiently general to describe waterborne transport in various parts of the world having diverse geographic (e.g. rivers, ports and coastal regions) and environmental (tidal, seasonal, and weather) conditions. The model and software library developed in Phase I will serve as foundation to be enhanced in phase II to a fully 3-D T&D model with coupled air-sea interaction capability.
