DELWAQ

DELWAQ is the engine of the D-Water Quality and D-Ecology programmes of the Delft3D suite. It is based on a rich library from which relevant substances and processes can be selected to quickly put water and sediment quality models together.

The processes library covers many aspects of water quality and ecology, from basic tracers, dissolved oxygen, nutrients, organic matter, inorganic suspended matter, heavy metals, bacteria and organic micro-pollutants, to complex algae and macrophyte dynamics. High performance solvers enable the simulation of long periods, often required to capture the full cycles of the processes being modelled.

The finite volume approach underlying DELWAQ allows it to be coupled to both the structured grid hydrodynamics of the current Delft3D-FLOW engine and the upcoming D-Flow Flexible Mesh engine (1D-2D-3D) of the Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite (or even other models such as TELEMAC).

'DELWAQ in open source' is our invitation to all leading experts to collaborate in further development and research in the field of water quality, ecology and morphology using Delft3D. Feel free to post your DELWAQ related questions or comments in this dedicated forum space. If you are new to DELWAQ, the tutorial (in the user manual) is a good place to start.

problem in Part when simulating oil spill

Hi, every one. I use the GUI 4.02.03
and the Deltares, FLOW2D3D Version 6.01.17.5346, Mar 31 2017, 19:10:08
I want to simualte a case of 3D oil spill.
the 3D hydrodynamics results has been trasfered. but when I start the oil. it just appear following , and doesn't go on. waht is the possilble reason?
is is due to that the number of mesh grids is too many? Since when I test with a small case, the model could run reasonable and correct.

Besides, another little problem is that when I started to couple the com-.dat. for the purpuse of creating .hyd files, the last
reminder is always appear on the creen
" Conversion has been done
NEFIS message 6005:
Element 'MNKSRC ' does not exist in definition file
Exit from Delft3D-Coupling
"
I ignored it previously. Is it matter?

Thanks !

I would say that the second problem you mention is the cause of Delft3D-PART not running properly. I must admit I would have expected a more comprehensive error message, but if the coupling program does not work, as indicated by the message, then no converted files exist for Delft3D-PART to use.

The problem was discussed in a recent thread. You should preferrably use the buitlin coupling, as that gives you the hydrodynamic result files you can use directly in PART.

Thank, Arjen!

I attched the couplnef file and .log file. I find that all these files had been created after coupling. could you help me to check it. are they proper?
Thank you very much for you quick reply.

Hi,

As Arjen said, beter use the direct coupling, see also this thread:
http://oss.deltares.nl/web/delft3d/coast-/-estuary/-/message_boards/view_message/1258221

There was a change in the FLOW code to stop writing an empty table, but the coupling program still expected that table to be in the file, eventought it was empty. The coupling program was fixed just after the release of the version you have, see also in this thread:
http://oss.deltares.nl/web/delft3d/coast-/-estuary/-/message_boards/view_message/1161137

greetings,
Michelle

Oh, and with respect to you PART question, are you sure the calculation stopped? At the start of the calculation PART makes an overlay between the FLOW grid, and the zoom grid. depending on the resolution of the zoom-grid, this can take quite some time. Please check your task manager if the proces delpar.exe is still running and using CPU.

As a test, you might want to change the number of cells in X and Y direction to 2x2 for example. This might speed up the initialisation, and will tell you that the model can actually run.

greetings,
Michelle

Hi, Michelle,
Thanks!
My problems had been solved following your advice. Previously, I set the number of output cells in X and Y direction to 1000x1000, which is too many, and thus cost much time during the initialisation. I mistook that the program had been stopped abnormally. But actually it still was running.
Thanks both for the coupling problem. Your are so nice and responsible.

Regard,

Yafei, DUAN.
