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!

I downloaded the Delft3D's Graphical User Interface (GUI) and followed the installations instructions for Windows:
-Install vcredist_x86 (2010).exe and MCRInstaller.exe
-Unzip the delft3d_.....zip
-execute substitute_delft3d_env.bat
-execuet d3d_menu.bat

But a message of license not valid appears!!

In the original email deltares sent me, they say I need to install the DS License manager and use the license file they sent me (Delft3D_GI.lic).

I HAVE NOT INSTALLED THE LICENSE MANAGER! Because I CAN'T FIND IT!!! WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD IT!!

I checked the log file and it says:
Authorization module version: 5.03.01.209
Environment variable DHSDELFT_LICENSE_FILE not set!

I copied the license file to my installation directory (one level above source, manuals, tutorial and win32 directories) and tried again but nothing happens.

All the explanations were easy to follow except the one about the License manager.

WHAT ELSE SHOULD I DO????

Thanks a lot,
Alexis

Hi Alexis,

I am trying to istall Delft3D and I have the same problem as yourself.
I cannot fine DS License Manager.
Have you found a solution for this?

Cheers!

Hi Diego and Alexis,

The DS_License_Manager installer should be on the same ftp site that you accessed to download the GUI setup files.
This site should be listed in the e-mail you received from deltares, along with the MCRInstaller for quickplot and other necessary files.

Kind regards,

Mihael

Hi Diego!

You need to execute the *.exe file that you previously download from Deltares ftp.
I don't remember very well, but in the one or second window which is opened, the program asks you if you want to install Delft 3d or the License Manager.
German had the same problem that you. Last week, I showed how to install the GUI.
If you have problems, you know... send me an email.
Did you remember the phrase: 'pa eso estamos los amigos...?

Regards

Gabriel

Isn't DS_Flex.exe the license manager?!

Hi Chris!
Yes, it is.
