This new IAHR Book provides a resource for understanding the effluent discharge mechanisms and the approaches for modelling them. It bridges the gap between academia and industry with a focused approach in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling and providing practical examples and applications. With a detailed discussion on performing numerical modelling of effluent discharges in various ambient waters and with different discharge configurations, the book covers the application of OpenFOAM in effluent discharge modelling.
