Abstract
    A new model for the Scheldt estuary was built in TELEMAC 3D. The model includes the Belgian coastal area, a small part of the neighbouring French coastal area and a part of the Dutch coastal area, including the Eastern Scheldt; the entire Scheldt estuary with tributaries and even the controlled flooding areas alongside the estuary. It is the first time that all these areas of interest are included in a single schematisation with an appropriate local resolution. The culvert functionality was re-written for this project in order to cover a wider range of flow conditions that can exist through a culvert (relatively to what is currently implemented in TELEMAC 2D). Code development is shared with the community through the system of a subversion. This paper discusses the setup of the model, and describes the new functionalities added to the code.
