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.

Problem with compiling tag version 9180

Problem with compiling tag version 9180

I am trying to compile tag version 9180 under Windows that I downloaded from your website. I'm using Visual Studio 2015 and Intel Fortran compiler 2018. Based on discussions in the forums, these two versions should work well together. I have tried to compile this tag version a few times now, but I keep having the same problem every time. What happens is that Visual Studio appears to freeze after this message pops up:
Skipped Build: Project: flow2d3d_openda, Configuration: Release x64 ------
I have made sure to clear out src\bin between runs.
I have attached the information from the output window in a text file. Any ideas what causes Visual Studio to freeze? Is there a problem with flow2d3d_openda.
Any help will be appreciated.

Edit: I have added the result from my last run. I made sure to download a fresh version of the source code before running this one. On the last line it states that "Project not selected to build for this solution configuration".
Final Edit: I was able to compile tag version 68026 without any problems using VS 2017 and Fortran Compiler 2018. I incorrectly thought that version 9180 was the latest version.
