Riverware Training workshop



Introduction

The dam implementation unit of the ministrey of water resources and electricity requsted the water research center of the university of Khartoum to organize a training activity for their engineers on RIVERWARE software, making the use of the collaboration between water research center (WRC) and center for advanced support for water and environment systems(CADSWES) – university of Colorado ( the owners of the software ) .
The water research center team has done an excellent work in organizing this training activity and in paying the software licenses from USA.

About Riverware ( riverware.org )
 RiverWare (since 1993) is a river system modeling tool. It is an ideal platform for operational decisionmaking, responsive forecasting, operational policy evaluation, system optimization, water accounting, water rights administration, and long-term resource planning.
Model Any Basin Select generic basin features from a palette, name the features, and link them together to create your basin topology.
Customize Your Model Select the appropriate physical process equations for each basin feature. Choose units for entering and displaying data. Create and name data icons for holding special data for policies or user-defined functions. Configure plots and spreadsheet-like views of the data.
Express Operating Policy as Dynamic Data Determine policy with maximum flexibility and ease of use thanks to RiverWare's ability to express operating policy as user-defined data. Because policy is not compiled into the code, it can be created and modified easily.
Simulate or Optimize Switch easily between pure simulation, rulebased simulation and optimization modes. RiverWare's integration of these modeling approaches into one package makes this possible.
Schedule, Forecast and Plan Manage daily scheduling, mid-term forecasting and long-range planning by using RiverWare's flexible and innovative utilities. Easily modify the model to apply to new design studies or the analysis of operating policies.
Use Your Model with Ease Enjoy intuitive interaction and informative messaging to achieve better modeling results faster and more efficiently, even for users with a wide range of experience and expertise.
Update Your Model to Meet Future Needs Use RiverWare's data-centered design to update any aspect of your model as needs change. To complement your changing needs, RiverWare developers provide updated, enhanced versions of the model, compatible with changing compilers and operating systems. In short, RiverWare makes obsolescence obsolete.
