2020 Group Half-Year Results
Group Half-Year Results presentation - 30 july 2020
Developed more than 20 years ago by EDF's R&D and the Maritime and River Technical Research Centre (CETMEF), Mascaret is a 1-dimensional free surface flow modelling solver based on the Saint-Venant equations.
Mascaret comprises three hydraulic engines enabling calculation of the following states:
The Cell module used in conjunction with the river nodes makes it possible to take account of floodplains that are relatively isolated from the main channel using a set of interconnected storage cells. These can then be linked to the river and to each other using a range of different hydraulic links representing exchange zones and natural flow obstacles (embankments, weirs, channels, siphons, orifices, sluices, etc.) An "automatic calibration" option is available for a reach with steady river flow.
Mascaret is used particularly in the modelling of:
Mascaret is used to construct and use hydraulic models, and to visualise calculation results. It is available for use with Windows and GNU/Linux, and is distributed as freeware under the GNU GPL v3.
