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! 


We have launched a new website (still under construction so expect continuous improvements) and a new forum dedicated to Delft3D Flexible Mesh.

Please follow this link to the new forum: 

Post your questions, issues, suggestions, difficulties related to our Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite on the new forum.

Dear colleagues,

I am about to start my PhD work and I am planning to use the Delft3D flexible Mesh in 3D mode. In this way, I would like to know if it already supports non-equidistant sigma-layers in vertical direction, or if it is still a “beta” functionality. If it is still a “beta” functionality how can I became a beta user? Do I have access to a pre-release version?

Hye guys! I think that you need to find something cool to fulfill your time. So, I know that this website <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--> will be able to satisfy yourself, and only there you could find a lot of different stuff for your work. I hope it would be helpful to you.
