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 are the challenges in Scrum ?

What are the challenges in Scrum ?Each of the roles in Scrum is specifically tailored for serving different purpose. Their focus is also different. The Scrum Master’s focus is on the process, practices, people and the system. The Product Owner’s focus in entirely on the Product and business.·      When a Product Owner asked to play the role of a Scrum Master, the primary role will supersede the secondary role. The Product Owner’s role is to maximize the value of the product delivered by the development team. The natural instinct is to get so much work done by the development team rather than coaching them to get better.
·      If a Scrum Master is asked to play the role of a Product Owner, it isn’t going to be an easy one as the Product Owner role is like an owner/CEO of the product. There are a lot many skills needed to become a Product Owner.·      A person cannot maximize value and as well as help the team to become self-organized and high performing. Each role’s focus is different and trying to merge them will create more hindrance than help.·      Even on a temporary basis, one cannot become a proxy of another as it will create confusion. They will not be able to do justice to both the roles.If there are people crunch for playing the roles, find someone who can temporarily play the role until the Organization can find someone on a full-time basis. It is very important that these roles are kept separate without overlapping with their responsibilities. Devops Online Training
