intro story Coast / Estuary

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.

    Hi everyone, I am trying to compile any version of Delft3D in iOS 10.15.6 (19G2021) but every single time when I run the command "make" gives me this error: Generating version number in the ./deltares_common_version.F90 Done, new version number is: 67540M /bin/sh ../../../../../libtool --tag=FC --mode=compile mpif90 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../../../../.. -DWITH_DELFTONLINE -g -O2 -ffree-line-length-none -cpp -c -o deltares_common_version.lo deltares_common_version.F90 libtool: compile: mpif90 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../../../../.. -DWITH_DELFTONLINE -g -O2 -ffree-line-length-none -cpp -c deltares_common_version.F90 -fno-common -o .libs/deltares_common_version.o libtool: compile: mpif90 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../../../../.. -DWITH_DELFTONLINE -g -O2 -ffree-line-length-none -cpp -c deltares_common_version.F90 -o deltares_common_version.o >/dev/null 2>&1 /bin/sh ../../../../../libtool --tag=FC --mode=compile mpif90 -DWITH_DELFTONLINE -g -O2 -ffree-line-length-none -cpp -c -o multi_file_io.lo multi_file_io.f90 libtool: compile: mpif90 -DWITH_DELFTONLINE -g -O2 -ffree-line-length-none -cpp -c multi_file_io.f90 -fno-common -o .libs/multi_file_io.o multi_file_io.f90:79:43: 77 | res = CUTIL_MF_READ(fptr,strout,savepos) ! pass the starting position of read back to the caller | 2 78 | else 79 | res = CUTIL_MF_READ(fptr,strout,lastpos) ! disregard starting position of read | 1 Error: Type mismatch between actual argument at (1) and actual argument at (2) (INTEGER(4)/INTEGER(8)). make[8]: *** [multi_file_io.lo] Error 1 make[7]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[6]: *** [all] Error 2 make[5]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[4]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make: *** [all] Error 2 Can anyone give me a light how do I solve this problem?

    the number of the layers is 100 at most. when i make the number of the layers exceed 100, such as 150, it will apears error, so how can i solve it, the following is the error: ******************************************************************************** *** *** Deltares, FLOW2D3D Version, Nov 6 2018, 12:53:18 *** built from : *** *** runid : JLR_YZR_steady *** date,time : 2019-08-31, 23:08:53 *** ******************************************************************************** *** ERROR Number of layers too large.

  • 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.
