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! 


We have launched a new website (still under construction so expect continuous improvements) and a new forum dedicated to Delft3D Flexible Mesh.

Please follow this link to the new forum: 

Post your questions, issues, suggestions, difficulties related to our Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite on the new forum.

Post Processing With ArcView

I am trying to export the results from a simulation into a ArcGIS. However I am unable to see the ArcView toolbar in ArcMap. So I am going through the installation and ArcView manual to get it working. In one of the steps, I have to run "C:\Deltares\delft3d_ohmw_4.01.00.rc.12\delft3d\win32\plugins\bin\Register_Arcgis10_MFE_win64.bat" to be able to view the toolbar in ArcMap. However I run into the following error

I have the following line of code in a batch(.bat) file that I have to run:

"c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ArcGIS\bin\ESRIRegAsm.exe" /p:desktop MfeArcGis10.UI.dll

When I run this batch file, the ESRIRegAsm.exe is executed but I get the error window attached at the bottom.

Can someone explain what this batch script is doing. From what I understand it is executing the executable with two arguments. What does the given error mean? How would I fix it?
