Environmental Fluids Dynamics Code (EFDC) Data Explorer
Entry ID: EFDC_Explorer
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Environmental Fluid Dynamics Code (EFDC) is a general-purpose modeling package for simulating three-dimensional (3-D) flow, transport, and biogeochemical processes in surface water systems including: rivers, lakes, estuaries, reservoirs, wetlands, and near-shore to shelfscale coastal regions. The EFDC model was originally developed at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science for estuarine and coastal applications and is public domain software. The US EPA has continued to support its development and now EFDC is part of a family of models recommended by EPA for TMDL development. In addition to hydrodynamic and salinity and temperature transport simulation capabilities, EFDC is capable of simulating cohesive and noncohesive sediment transport, near-field and far-field discharge dilution from multiple sources, the transport and fate of toxic contaminants in the water and sediment phases, and the dissolved oxygen/nutrient process (i.e. eutrophication). Special enhancements to the hydrodynamics of the code, including vegetation resistance, drying and wetting, hydraulic structure representation, wave-current boundary layer interaction, and wave-induced currents, allow refined modeling of wetland and marsh systems, controlled-flow systems, and near-shore wave-induced currents and sediment transport. The EFDC code has been extensively tested and documented and used in more than 80 modeling studies. The code is currently used by university, government, and engineering and environmental consulting organizations.
