ZSF documentation

This is the documentation for the ZSF, a Deltares tool to calculate salt intrusion through shipping locks. The documentation covers:

  • How to get the ZSF running on your computer. For end-users this means downloading either the Excel workbook, or installing the Python package.

  • Making your own calculations, by means of several illustrative examples for both the Excel workbook and Python package.

  • The theory on which the ZSF is based, serving as background information on the inner workings of the libzsf core.

  • An overview of the C and Python API, e.g. to embed the ZSF in other software.


ZSF is an abbreviation for “Zeesluisformulering”, which would translate to Sea Lock Formulation.
