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!

Compiling in Ubuntu 11.04 - autoreconf failed

Dear all,
I am trying to compile Delft3D on Ubuntu 11.04. It seems that I have all the prerequisites, but when I run the ./autogen.sh I got this error message:


Preparing the Delft3D build system...please wait

Found GNU Autoconf version 2.67
Found GNU Automake version 1.11.1
Found GNU Libtool version 2.2.6b

Automatically preparing build ... Warning: autoreconf failed
Attempting to run the preparation steps individually

Preparing build ... ERROR: aclocal failed

Anyone has some idea about this error?

Regards

Giovanni

Hi Giovanni,

Is file "aclocal.m4" generated? If it is: does it give you more information? Can you post it here? If it isn't: Do you have write permission in this directory? Is there enough free space (1Mb should do)?

Is there any file with extension ".log" present, in the src root directory or subdirectory "log"? Can you post it here?

Regards,

Adri

I'm getting a similar error in CentOS (from autogen.log; no other log files generated):

Hi Steven,

What happens if you remove directory "autom4te.cache" manually? Or even more safe: start again in an empty directory.

Hi Prashansa,

Can you upgrade Autoconf and Libtool to newer versions? See the prerequisites.

Hi Iv,

Please update Autoconf and Libtool to newer versions, see prerequisites.

CentOS is a very stable Linux version but is not always using recent package versions. A package upgrade (using "yum") might not be enough. In that case you have to install a newer version manually. If you install it on another location than the default one, be sure to refer to the correct version via the PATH envirenmont parameter, see the Delft3D "build.sh" script for an example.

Regards,

Adri
