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!

Delft3D Precompiled Version 4.01.00 & mpich

Hello,

Is it possible to run a 2DH morphodynamic model (with waves and tides) using the Delft3D Hydro-Morphodynamics & Water Quality 4.01.00 Windows precompiled version with mpich?

Or, do I need to compile my own source code on Windows in order to use mpich and thus, parallel computation?

Greetings

Hi Alejandro,

When you have bought a service package, you will receive precompiled executables which you can use to do the computations. If you don't have a service package, you have to compile the kernels yourself and only the GUI will be delivered by Deltares.

Regards,

Adri

Thank you very much, Adri!

I understand now.
