TK CONSULT AG, HOLINGER AG as well as HOLINGER Ingenieure GmbH (members of the HOLINGER group) was invited to present at the "7. Expertenforum Regenüberlaufbecken" of the DWA-Landesverband Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart on the subject of "Optimisation of a rainwater basin using 3D-CFD simulation - practical example of planning and implementation steps".

The "7. Expertenforum Regenüberlaufbecken" of the DWA Landesverband Baden-Württemberg took place as an industry meeting place for water management stakeholders in Stuttgart on 15.03.2022. The hybrid event focused on the optimisation of rainwater basins and placed it in the current context of climate change. The established format combined theory and practice with innovations from manufacturers and science.

Based on a project with the city La Chaux-de-Fonds (Switzerland) the HOLINGER group showed the application of 3D-CFD simulations for the optimization a rainwater basin. The goal of this project was to increase the intake and cleaning capacity of a rainwater basin and checking the functionality during different rainfall events. The presentation outlined the entire project flow from planning to execution of the simulations.
