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. 
On this discussion page you can post questions, research discussions or just share your experience about modelling coastal and/or estuarine systems with Delft3D FM.

  • refine grid

    Hello: I want to refine grid like this(hand drawing is roughe): [img][/img] I have tried to paste two grids but does not work. I also tried to draw an irregular grid,but it could not be saved into .grd [img][/img] Will you have another way or point out my mistakes,please. thanks

  • Teodósio Nzualo

    Dear, My name is Teodósio Nzualo and i'm a pos-doc research in Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. I user the Delft3D since 2010 in free version. In March 1, 2016 i received from Deltares the last License which i'm using. However in March 18, my QUICKPLOT left to work. The mensage that i received is "Error in mclFreeStackTrace". What could it be? Is it a error of compiler R2013? and how to resolve it? I'm using the Delft3D in version 1 - MCR_R2013b_win32_installer 2 - vcredist_x86 (2010 SP1) 3 - delft3d_tutorial_x86 4 - delft3d_binaries_x86 5 - DS_Flex Specifications of my PC Processor: Intel(R)Core(TM) i7 CPU 2.93 GHz Memory RAM: 6.00 GB System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor And i'm using a Windows 10 Thanks for your attention.

  • Version and Compiling

    I am trying to use Delft3d version 4.01.01.rc.03. I want to know, for this version of Delft3d, which flow tag should I use? Similarly, if I want to use Delft3d version 4.02.02, which flow tag version should I use. And what is the flow tag version that i should use for Delft3d version 4.00.02? I am trying to compile the source code since last week but there is always some errors and problems. I am using Microsoft visual studio 2010 and intel parallel studio XE 2015. Is there any way i can run Delft3d for simulation without compiling the source code? I would be very much thankful for your support.
