 Course Description
 

Introduction to Simulation Modeling is a course for first-time or novice users of RiverWare. It has been taught for over 20 years by the RiverWare research and development team, and has received enthusiastic reviews. The course includes both lectures and self-guided tutorials.

During this training you will learn to build and run simulation models using many of RiverWare's features. We start by analyzing an existing model, then you will build a model from scratch, adding objects and selecting physical process methods to tailor the simulation to a specific river system and for specific modeling purposes. You will learn how to run a model driven by input data and special flags, display and analyze the results, and diagnose problems. We also introduce many of RiverWare’s utilities such as the system control table (SCT), scripting tools for automating run procedures and executing in batch mode, multiple run management, the RiverWare Interactive Scenario Explorer, and connecting to a database using database management interfaces (DMIs). The final exercise introduces rulebased simulation, the topic of the follow-on course.
