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.

Start DD Boundaries error

Hi, I try to run my DDB with start DD in Delft3d Flow, in this case I use more than 2 domain grid. I include a pict (pict number 1). But after I run my DDB the error script is show up. Like this one:

D_Hydro [40.000462] <anonymous> >> d_hydro shutting down normally

The sript said it is FINISHED, but this processing doesn't produce trim and trih file. How to solve this problem? When the velocity and water level changes too high in start DDB.
Can anybody help me in this forum as I am still learning this software for my research. Thankyou

Yes, it is possible to run with three domains. Whereas I haven't set up the simulation myself, I am using the results of a three-domain grid to run a Delwaq simulation. I've attached
an example of a .ddb file for three domains (coarse outer grid, intermediate in between and fine by the coast). Hope this helps. mybkexperience
