intro story D-Flow FM

 

D-Flow Flexible Mesh

D-Flow Flexible Mesh (D-Flow FM) is the new software engine for hydrodynamical simulations on unstructured grids in 1D-2D-3D. Together with the familiar curvilinear meshes from Delft3D 4, the unstructured grid can consist of triangles, pentagons (etc.) and 1D channel networks, all in one single mesh. It combines proven technology from the hydrodynamic engines of Delft3D 4 and SOBEK 2 and adds flexible administration, resulting in:

  • Easier 1D-2D-3D model coupling, intuitive setup of boundary conditions and meteorological forcings (amongst others).
  • More flexible 2D gridding in delta regions, river junctions, harbours, intertidal flats and more.
  • High performance by smart use of multicore architectures, and grid computing clusters.
An overview of the current developments can be found here.
 
The D-Flow FM - team would be delighted if you would participate in discussions on the generation of meshes, the specification of boundary conditions, the running of computations, and all kinds of other relevant topics. Feel free to share your smart questions and/or brilliant solutions!

  • dispersion of radionuclides

    Dear all, I'm beginner in DELFT 3D and I'm working on the dispersion of radionuclides. Please help me with the following issues. 1- Regarding the “DELWAQ” module, is it reasonable to study the dispersion of conservative radionuclide (which their transport equation is mainly the advection-diffusion Eq.) via coupling a transport code to DELFT 3D? or does DELFT have the ability to do such a simulation by itself? 2- If the coupling is reasonable, is it possible to define the advection-diffusion Eq. by means of a UDF and using its variables or is it doable trough the source code of DELFT? Is there a complete access to the source of the code? 3- By using UDF for this purpose, is it necessary to define certain kind of input data for UDF? or do we only use the computed current data from DELFT as input data for transport calculations in the UDF? Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
