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!

file not found while executing version 4.01.00.rc.07

Dear all,

I have just installed the version 4.01.00.rc.07 after the new license has sent to me a few days ago.
When trying to run the program an error message appears:

couldn't read file "C:/../create_config_xml.tcl": no such file or directory while executing "source..." (file "C: /../hyd_online.tcl" line 20)

I've already tried to re-install the software but no way
Please, may you help me? I'm probably doing something wrong

thank you
Kind regards,

Paolo Gyssels

Hi Paolo,

This seems to be a bad installation. I checked rc07 on my machine and the file was there:
c:\Program Files (x86)\Deltares\Delft3D 4.01.00.rc.07\win32\menu\bin\create_config_xml.tcl

Please try the following:
  • Run the setup, choose "remove"
  • Check that "c:\Program Files (x86)\Deltares\Delft3D 4.01.00.rc.07" is completely removed (was not the case on my PC)
  • Run the setup again, choosing one of the "install" options


Optionally (if it fits in your work), switch to the rc.09 instead of reinstalling the rc.07. You can obtain it at the oss site.

Regards,

Adri

Hi Adri,
I re-downloaded version rc.07 and rc.09
The same error appears for both versions.

You wrote to run set-up and choose "remove" but I do not install anything, I do the following:

1) download everything
2) run Vcredist and MCR installer (last versions)
3) unzip the "delft3d_ohmw_4.01.00.rc.09.zip" into c:\Deltares\Delft3D_4.01.00.rc.07\ (or 9)
4) run substitute_delft3d_env.bat
5) the new key already works

is there anything wrong with that? In the past it worked.

Thank you again and sorry

Best regards,

Paolo

Hi Paolo,

After installing/unzipping the rc.07/rc.09, you still need to compile the Delft3D open source code and add the resulting binaries to the Delft3D installation, see the instructions here. These "resulting binaries" also contain some scripts, including "...\win32\menu\bin\create_config_xml.tcl". But you do need source code with revision number 2367 or higher for that. See also the release notes.

It seems that the source code you used to build the executables is too old. GUI version 4.00.03 and higher only works with Delft3D-FLOW version 6.00.00 and higher.

Regards,

Adri
