Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


The MAC3D computer code is a three-dimensional numerical model for incompressible flow. To enhance geometric flexibility, it uses multiblock grids, which are composite structured grids assembled from one or more curvilinear blocks (subgrids). Flow options include k-ɜ turbulence modeling and temperature-driven buoyancy. The code is applicable for internal flow in general and free-surface flow at low Froude number.
