    Good question Ezekiel.
    In CFD simulations, especially for internal flow problems, you can specify the turbulence boundary conditions based on hydraulic diameter. Also sometimes if your cross-section is not the very standard one and you need to calculate the Reynolds number then you can calculate based on hydraulic diameter.
    You can calculate based on the perimeter and the area of the cross-section.
    Dh=4A/P
