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!

Horizontal distribution from the data of sigma coordinate

Dear all,

I'm trying to draw a horizontal distribution of variables such as velocity or temperature at specified depth from data of sigma coordinate.
Can it be done by using QUICKPLOT? I couldn't figure out how to do that...

If there are some other ways, could you kindly please tell me?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Kazuhiro,

For a sigma layer model, you can only see the specific layer using QUICKPLOT. For specific depth, you have to program yourself to get the corresponding layers then dump out the values.

Hi Qinghua,

Thank you for your response.
OK, I understood.
Thank you for the suggestion.

Best regards,

Kazuhiro
