1 fluidyn FLOWCOAST FLOOIL 3D Fluid Dynamics Model to Simulate Oil slick movement in coastal waters or rivers FLOOIL

2 FLOOIL 3D Fluid Dynamics model to Simulate Flow and Oil transport in water bodies like river, estuaries and coastal area. It uses Computational Fluid Dynamics tools in a finite difference based approach to solve the differential equations governing mass, momentum and energy transfer. Finite Difference scheme has been used to compute the mass fluxes and oil spill transport. The effects due to wind at the surface and bed roughness at the bottom have been taken into account. FLOOIL has built-in models to account for density variation due to Oil Spill and BFC Grid Generation technique to take into account the curved flow boundaries. INTRODUCTION :

3 FLOOIL FLOOIL can be used for simulating oil slick movement by considering the transportation of an oil slick due to advection spreading- evaporation and dissolution. FLOOIL can also consider the lateral flows and Oil discharges joining the flow domain at any location. The model can also be used for varying boundary values over the time at user specified locations. FLOOIL has special features to analyze time dependent velocity fields, Oil spill movement and water levels at user specified location.
