Abstract
    Different types of numerical models are used nowadays in the hydraulic design of navigation locks. At the upper end in terms of physical complexity and computational effort, are the three-dimensional models based on the Navier-Stokes equations, usually referred to as CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) models. Here, a short overview is given of the main features, progress and challenges of CFD modelling for (lock) design purposes.
