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!

Running error GUI 4.01

Youngling Posts: 9 Join Date: 2/27/12 Recent Posts
Hi All,

I have just installed the Delft3D Gui 4.01 on windows 8 enviroment and compiled the source code 5_01_00_3185. The model seems to be running ok but every time I load a new .mdf it appears a message mentioning that there is an untested windows 6.2 version detected while executing the menu D3D_HOME. It seems that there is an incompability between the gui and the source code versions. Do anybody know if this is normal once the software is running fine?



Thank you very much

Ivana

Hi Ivana,

Yes, there is an incompatibility: Delft3D-FLOW version 6 only works in combination with Delft3D-GUI 4.00.03 (and higher).

Please use the latest tagged version of the source code, currently https://svn.oss.deltares.nl/repos/delft3d/tags/3185

See the release notes for more information.

See the remark here about the tagged version numbering.

Regards,

Adri

Hi Adri,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Actually, I am already using the latest tagged version of the source code (5.01.00.3185). That's why I do not understand the reason for the incompatibility...is there anything else that could cause this?

Thanks a lot

Regards,

Ivana

Hi Ivana,

Yes, you are right, you are using revision 3185. I'm sorry I missed that. But it is version 6.01.05.3185. (see the SVN log of that tagged version or the release notes).

I discussed this problem with a colleague: Delft3D-GUI uses a package named Qt. The Qt version currently being used does not support Windows 8. When you try to run it on Windows 8, the error message that you get will appear. This problem will be solved in the GUI version that will be released in 2014.

I'm afraid that means that Delft3D-GUI 4.01.00.rc.09 does not run on Windows 8 machines. Running calculations should be possible using batch scripts. But for the GUI you will need an older operating system.

Regards,

Adri

Hi Adri,

Nice to hear that this problem will be resolved in the next GUI version. But, after clicking 'ok' in the error message, the running calculations work fine. So, I think I'll skip it and keep using this GUI version until the next one is released. Thanks a lot Adri.

Regards,

Ivana
