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! 


We have launched a new website (still under construction so expect continuous improvements) and a new forum dedicated to Delft3D Flexible Mesh.

depth to xyz

Hello everyone,

I hope that everyone of you is doing great, I have a question about something I think it is possible to do with QUICKIN, but I am not sure.
I created a depth file for 2 domains (that I will later combine in flow using DD method).
For each one of these domains I manually created the depth files (using depth isoline, depth line sweep and depth linear).
So, now I want to use this depth files (with all the depths in each point) and extend them to 3 grids, that I will use in anidation.

Can you give any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
Have a nice day all!.

Dear Alejandro,

To get the depth values from a grid into an xyz-file you have to perform the following actions:
Be sure that there are no samples anymore loaded into QUICKIN.
Select from the menubar Operations -> Copy Depth to Samples.
Select from the menubar Files -> Attribute FIles -> Save Samples

Now the samples (depth-values) are written to file in the xyz-file format
