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!

Consolidation in Delft3D !!

Consolidation in Delft3D !!

Hi all,

I am running a long term morphological simulation of delta using Delft3D-FLOW. I would like to take into account the consolidation of underlying soils due to newly deposited sediments.
So is there a way to implement the consolidation process in current bed stratigraphy module ?

Thanks in advance,
Ashok

This is a problem/question that i have pondered myself. Currently, I am just assuming uniform consolidation is a component of my relative sea level rise.
