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.

D_hydro.exe and mpiexec not found

If someone can help me please. I'm trying to install Delft3D in a Windows 10, with VS 2019 and Fortran 2020, but had to select older version when installing the GUI. I've compiled using the trunk 7545.

I did all of the steps on "", up to number 4, but now stuck in number 5.1 trying to run the examples before having to copy the binaries to the GUI folder.

When trying to execute "run_all_examples.bat" it gives me some messages saying that Windows couldn't find: "d_hydro.exe" and "mpiexec" in the same directory "...bin/win64/flow2d3d/bin/". Which I don't even have.

I know that probably my binaries were not built correctly, but can't find what I can do to fix it. I've done some suggestions found on this forum that helped some of the errors of the VS build log, but not this one.

My binaries folder is the following path: "C:/Users/Igor/Desktop/Delft3D/Delft3Drepository/bin/win64" and then I have the following folders: dimr, menu, scripts, shared. 

I can't seem to attach my build log here, but I got in the last compilation 20 successes, 5 fails and 4 ignored.
