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.

What happens to Project Managers when organizations adopt Scrum?

What happens to Project Managers when organizations adopt Scrum?Well, organizations use Scrum to solve complex problems using collective wisdom iteratively. So, the concept of projects may not work in such complex contexts where the requirements are unclear let alone the solution. As I said earlier, the closest to a concept project in such scenarios is a Sprint or an iteration. How do we map the project management responsibilities to what Scrum teams do? Let’s give it a shot by looking at each of the Project Management knowledge areas:Integration: Both development team and Product owners are responsible for this.Scope: The Product Owner is primarily responsible for uncovering the user needs, prioritized them keeping in mind all stakeholders(users, buyers, sponsors) and work development team to evolve the understanding of user needs.Time and Cost: The Product Owner is primarily responsible for maximizing the value of the work done by the Scrum team. So they act as product facilitators to define experiments, Sprint goals and deciding when to release product to the  market. They are also responsible for prioritization of product backlog items and deciding what to spend money and what not. <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Devops Online Training
