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.

PART is missing in menu

Dear all,

I would like to compute particle tracking, but I don't see "PART" in the menu window.
Could you tell me the reason of this?

I find the folder "part" in win32 and "part_gui.exe" in the folder "part". When I click "part_gui.exe", I get an error message that includes sentences below.

: No such feature exists.
Feature: DHS_Delft3D_PART

Indeed, I cannot find "DHS_Delft3D_PART" in my license file.
Is this problem related to my license file?
I'm using GUI version "delft3d_ohmw_4.01.00.rc.03" as an open source code.

Please help me solving this problem.
I would appreciate your great help.

Thank you in advance.
Best regards,

Kazuhiro TSUBONO

Dear Kazuhiro,

Part is not open source yet, instead the OSS trunk currently contains a dummy version just to satisfy compilation dependencies.

The Part engine should be available end 2014/begin 2015.

Dear Christophe,

Thank you for your response.
I'll look forward to the Part to be available in the future.
