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 in parallel-Windows platform

Dear all,

I would like to pose a question regarding parallel computations in Windows platform. I managed to set up parallel computations for single mdf domain using MPI environment. If I understand well we can't follow the same procedure for DD process? Is it assumed that a single machine uses several cores automatically when we apply DD process or is any other option I am missing? Apart from windows platforms/ single machine , is it possible to run in parallel DD in unix clusters ?

Thank you all in advance for your time.

Best Wishes,
Antonia
