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.

[GUI 4.02.03] Issues with PLCT, segment file, DD couple

Dear all,

I was facing some issues with the new GUI and DELWAQ which I would like to share.

PLCT windows freeze when I try to re-open a recently saved processes file (*.0) .
I could reproduce this bug in a windows 10 and windows 7 (VM).
Solution: Downgrade the GUI

When I tried to import a segment file using the GUI, it complains that I should select the file, even when the file is already selected.
Solution: Downgrade the GUI

DDcouple using D3D-flow parallel run output (multiple com files).

The unique com file didn't worked.
The solution was to use the ddcouple within the following post:

Thanks for mentioning this. We must have a look at these issues!
