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!

problem running standard parallel example

Hi,

I have downloaded and compiled d3d flow (tag 4.00.07.0892) successfully. The .\examples\01_standard\run_flow2d3d.bat case runs without problems, but the run_flow2d3d_parallel.bat is giving problems.

I have the feeling this is something simple. Please can someone assist me?

I am getting the following error:
D:\dev\d3d_4\examples\01_standard>run_flow2d3d_parallel.bat
Unknown option: -d
Unable to connect to 'JKIEVIET-NB2:8676',

Press any key to continue . . .

Hi Luther,

Did you execute
smpd -install
before starting the run? See comments in "...\examples\01_standard\run_flow2d3d_parallel.bat".

Regards,

I had this same issue, even after running "smpd -install". I was also getting wrong smpd version errors.

I was able to fix all of this by running the mpiexec.exe that was already installed on my system. For me, these two lines in run_flow2d3d.bat did the trick.

set MPIPATH="C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\Shared Libraries\redist\intel64\mpirt\"
%MPIPATH%mpiexec -n 4 %exedir%\deltares_hydro.exe %argfile%

Hi Christopher,

Thank you for posting this solution. I added it (optionally) to the example script "<yourDelft3DCode>\examples\01_standard\run_flow2d3d_parallel.bat" in the trunk in revision 1995.

I think the key point is that both the "smpd" and the "mpiexec" must have the same version number. So OR use both of them from your local system, OR use both of them from "<yourDelft3DCode>\bin\win32\flow2d3d\bin".

Regards,

Adri
