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!

Convert matlab file to a depth file

Hello,

I have some bathymetry data as a .mat file. I also have the data for the respective latitude, longitude coordinates. How do I convert it to a .dep file to use it as an input for a Delft3d model?

Thank you.

Hi A.D.

You should write it to an -ascii *.xyz file: aA three columns text file of x-coordinates, y coordinates and depth levels.
Subsuequently you can load this in Quickin, togther with your grid and interpolate it to the grid there.

Regards,

Emiel
