Coast / Estuary

Coastal systems are among the most dynamic physical systems on earth and are subject to a large variety of forces. The morphodynamic changes occurring to coastlines worldwide are of great interest and importance. These changes occur as a result of the erosion of sediments, its subsequent transport as bed load or suspended load, and eventual deposition. 
Estuaries are partly enclosed water bodies that have an open connection to the coast. Estuaries generally have one or more branching channels, intertidal mudflats and/or salt marshes. Intertidal areas are of high ecological importance and trap sediments (sands, silts, clays and organic matter).
Within the Delft3D modelling package a large variation of coastal and estuarine physical and chemical processes can be simulated. These include waves, tidal propagation, wind- or wave-induced water level setup, flow induced by salinity or temperature gradients, sand and mud transport, water quality and changing bathymetry (morphology). Delft3D can also be used operationally e.g. storm, surge and algal bloom forecasting.

I have a simple question to insall Delft3D.

I read installing manual through homepage and I watched webinar.

Before compile Delft3D, I should have prerequisites.

Prerequisite is TortoiseSVN, Microsoft Visual Studio and Intel Fortran compiler on Windows

There is recommanded version of program, especially Microsoft Visual Studio and Intel Fortran compiler.

that is, Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and Intel Fortran compiler 12.0 at webinar.

If I use Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate,

Should I use Intel Fortran compiler, version 12.x or higher????

Thank you.

Hai Kim,

From my experience, it is better to use an older version of VS, for example VS 2010, instead of the latest one, as the codes are build using version VS 2008 (old version of VS)

I used VS 2013 when I first tried to compile the source code, but it failed each time. After a few trial and error, I finally managed to compile the code using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 (using service pack 1), and Intel Fortran compiler version 12 (XE composer 11)

And before compiling the code in VS, make sure you choose "release", and choose sither 64 bit or 32 bit system (I used 64bit)

Hope this helps

I am trying to compile the source code. But I dont know where I can download the Intel Fortran Compiler 12.0.
I have already the VS 2010.

Thank you for your help

Hi Katixa,

Via the Intel site you can download a trial version (valid for 1 month) of the Fortran compiler. This is normally only possible for the latest version they released, so that should be version 17. I expect that the combination of VisualStudio 2010 with Intel Fortran compiler 17 will work.

If you want to use Intel version 12.0, you will have to buy it. If you are going to buy something I advise you to use VisualStudio 2015 with Intel Fortran Compiler 16.0. We are about to switch to those versions as default versions.

If you want to use an open source compiler, then you will need to compile on Linux using the Gnu compilers.
