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.

Write them down

Write them downI used to get wild ideas at an unexpected time. Be it for the blog I am writing, or for the Book, I am penning down, could be for personal improvement, ideas for my work, and much more. I have personally lost so many ideas thinking that I will remember later. In school and college days, I roam around with a pen and a small diary in my pocket. I used to write them down, knowing my lousy memory. We all did that at some point in time.
I used to tell my participants and coaching clients to keep a note of things. Either you carry a pen and paper or take notes on your electronic gadgets, do it. Take notes, write them down, scribble, draw, do whatever. But do keep a record of things. Never lose an idea, a schedule, or something that will matter to you. Note them down; you will not remember everything. It is essential . <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Devops Online Training
