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.

How to use rtc(real time control) setting on linux ??

I have been study rtc(real time control) 3d-gate structure recently.

I tried test example( in my computer.
Test example was download in the forum(
Rtc model is well running in my computer.
In run file(run_flow2d3d_rtc.bat), rtc mode path is set. runfile name is rtc.exe.

Recent delft3d version, Referring release note, rtc is open souerce.
After delft3d.4709. version, user may be used this mode.

My question is as follow :

1. After delft3d.4709. version, how to applied rtc mode?
Where is runfile(rtc.exe)?
For Test version, rtc execute file is in the gui program.
In a batch file, user should hold the path for rtc.exe

2. rtc mode is well run in Delft3d-flow.
Does Saliniy, Temperaure, SSC, water quality are also applicable?

3. User can apply linux mode ?

Please good answer for me ..

Have a nice day emoticon

Hi Hirejet,
I am using delft3d flow-rtc to model the effect of the real time gate operation on flow . I use delft3d version 4.04.04 download from delft3d center. I always get the error:In synchronisation with RTC Routine:SyncFlowRtc_Init in tri-diag.2dw. I use the test example, 09.01-basic attached by Adri Mourits (  , as Adri suggested I have changed the path inside the script. 
I appreciate your help!
Best regards!
