Besides from my diving and filming interest, I am also interested in engineering.

One of my favorite diving areas in Denmark is Lillebælt.

One of the things that make diving in Lillebælt special is the strong currents that bring oxygen and nutrients with it.

The currents can be very strong from time to time, so I wanted to find out if some of the dive sites where more suited for diving when the currents was going north and vice versa.

For this purpose I modeled lillebælt in a cad program, and transferred it to the flow calculation program called Ansys.

The results can be found here.

The current is going north:
