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.

grid for Complex landboundary

Hello everyone
I need a little bit urgent help in my work!!!
I used to use splines for making grid but most of the time the landboundary was simple for using splines...
But this time it is complicated somehow.
I think i can not use that spline for this project and i need something like rectangular grid or maybe unstructured(I know this is not available yet)...
how can i have coarser grid at offshore and finer at the land boundary(without using edit in grid tab)
i couldn't find enough information in the manual!
the landboundary is attached to this thread....
thank you in advance for your great help....
Cheers

Hi Afshan

I had a quick go at drawing some splines in the attached image (they are a bit rough but hopefully good enough to demonstrate). I think it is possible to get a higher resolution in the middle and lower resolution offshore with splines laid out a bit like this. I'm not sure exactly where the focus of your model is but I assumed it is the two inlets in the center of the landboundary?

Cheers,

Richard

Dear Richard;
Thank you very much for your reply. Actually the sea is on the left side but thank you anyway for drawing those splines.
I have a problem with those splines. when i convert them into grid elements al those lines that are not attached to the others will attached together in a point far from my boundaries!
how can i use them like that!?and how can i fix this problem? cause in the previous versions there was a error when you have splines that does not pass the other splines!
would you please help me with that?
cause i think i can only use rectangular frid for these situations!
And yes...the focus of my model is in those two deltas that has been created naturally....especially the one that is in the left side of the land boundary.
Cheers

The superhatch surface creates large gaps because it contains few segments, so it gives  2 player games fast and smooth image processing performance. With small gaps, smooth arcs, it requires the software to process more images.
