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!

RGFGRID, QUICKIN and DIDO do not work.

When I try to run RGFGRID, QUICKIN or DIDO, I get the message:

-------------------------------

Program

C:\Software-Evaluation\DELFT3D\Delft3D 4.01.01.rc.03 (Windows)\delft3d\win32\/win32/plugins/bin/mfe_app.exe did not run succesfully

Message is copied to file d3d_menu.msg

-------------------------------

I have recently been sent a new licence file.

Does anyone know what the problem might be?

I think you either haven't entered the .lic file correctly or the license file is not valid. May be you need to request a new file.

Thanks for the reply.  I have tried running DS_Flex.exe with the new licence file, but I am still getting the same problem.

You're welcome. I'm not sure where the problem might be! 

I hope that somebody can help you
