* Versatile quasi 3D (2.5D) hydrodynamic model, closedby three selectable depthintegrated twoequation closure turbulence models; solving complete and nonsimplified fundamental governing equations, in association with passive mass transport equations (1 temperature eq. + 2 concentration component eqs.) and two extra transportequations, discretized by FVA (Finite Volume Approach) through spatially collocated variable arrangement (nonstaggered grid arrangement) on nonorthogonal bodyfitted multigrids.
* Available five twoequation closure models are: ?depthaveraged kepsilon model (McGuirk & Rodi, 1977), stemmed from ‘standard’ kepsilon model (by Lauder & Spalding, 1974) (Q3drm1.0 and 2.0); ?depthaveraged kw model (Yu & Zhang, 1988), originated from ‘standard’ kw model (by Ilegbusi and Spalding, 1982) (Q3drm1.0 and 2.0);? depthaveraged komega model (provided by the author) (Q3drm1.0 and 2.0), based on the most common ‘standard’ komega model, originally introduced by Saffman but popularized by Wilcox (1998); ?depthaveraged RNG kepsilon model (provided by the author, Q3drm2.0); and ?depthaveraged modified komega model (provided by the author, Q3drm2.0).

* Using mouse move on the computational domain caneasily display the geometry position, indexes of grid nodal point, waterdepth and solved variables without the help of any other commercial tool for graphical visualizations and analyses.
* FlowSolver can compute flow and transport behaviors forsteady and unsteady flows in shallow waters, including open channels, rivers, lakes and reservoirs, estuaries and coastal regions. Many requirements for solving practical problems in engineering can be well treated by the software. They are, for example, the nonuniform arrangement of longitudinal and transversal grid notes, irregular boundaries, symmetric boundary, effect of sidewall on flow in the region with incline, surface wind effect, surface heat diffusion, and so on.Various practical problems, such as side discharge, pointsource discharge (single pointsource and submerged multiport diffusers with specified jet direction), pointsink and area source discharge (contaminant confluence caused by the runoff from the slope along bank) in complicated natural and artificial waters with/without islands, including strong bending and bifurcated problem, can be numerically simulated andanalyzed.
Uses:Q3drm1.0/2.0 can be used to simulate, predictand analyze various problems in engineering, relative to flows, mixing,contaminan transport, stream pollution, water resource security, environmental protection and accidental discharge as well as the comparison of different discharge schemes, and so on. This numerical tool specializes in researches, engineering applications and teaching courses in the areas of Computational and Environmental Hydraulics, Hydrodynamics, Computational and Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Applied Mathematics,etc.
Numerous environmental flows can be considered as shallow, i.e., the horizontal length scales of the flow domain are much larger than the depth. Typical examples are found in low land rivers, lakes, estuaries, coastal areas and oceanic flows. Depthaveraged mathematical models are frequently used by researchers and engineers for modelling the flow behaviour and contaminant transport in well mixed shallow waters.
Twoequation closure turbulence models are one of the most common types of turbulence models. The socalled ‘standard’ twoequation turbulence models, used widely in industry, all cannot be directly adopted in depthaveraged modeling (also called depthintegrated modeling, quasi 3D modeling, shallow water modeling or 2.5D modeling). Till now, the vast majority of quasi 3D modeling tools in the world at most can only provide depthaveraged kepsilon turbulence model (McGuirk & Rodi, 1977) for users, which appears already beyond 40 years. However, current advanced CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) software for ‘standard’ 2D and 3D modeling can provide several, even up to dozens of twoequation closure turbulence models, because there is nonexistenta ‘universal’ turbulence closure model in the theory of turbulence modeling. Moreover, twoequation closure turbulence models are also very much still an active area of research and refined turbulence twoequation new models are still being developed. In order to change this situation falling behind for depthaveraged modeling, the author has developed the CFD software, namely Q3drm1.0/2.0 (Quasi 3D Refinedly Modeling). This numerical tool can help users solve the problems of flow, temperature and contaminant transport in natural and artificial shallow waters by using the advanced multigrid iterative method and spatially collocated variable arrangement on nonorthogonal bodyfitted multigrids, in association with three depthaveraged twoequation closure turbulence models (kepsilon, kw, komega for Q3drm1.0) or five depthaveraged twoequation closure turbulence models (kepsilon, kw, komega, RNG kepsilon and modified komega for Q3drm2.0).
Due to the expensive cost of depthaveraged site measuring, modeling by using different twoequation turbulence models will certainly increase the credibility of computational results, strengthen the competition ability of user’s project application and enhance its success probability.
