VISJET Computer Ocean Outfall Modelling System
Back one level
In the near future, all of Hong Kong's sewage will be discharged through a huge ocean outfall system in the southern coastal waters of Hong Kong. Based on theoretical and experimental research in hydraulics and computer graphics, the Civil Engineering Department and the Computer Science Department (of HKU) have joined hands to develop a state of the art computer outfall modelling system to predict and visualize the environmental impact of sewage discharged into the ocean. The model has been adopted for use in the Hong Kong Strategic Sewage Disposal Scheme (SSDS), the Stage II Shanghai Combined Sewerage Project, and the post operation monitoring of the Sydney Deep Water Ocean Outfall.
