DELWAQ goes open source!

Today Deltares announces the worldwide release of DELWAQ in open source via http://oss.delft3d.nl.

We are pleased to invite you to join the DELWAQ sub group at our Delft3D community website, where you can download the source code and participate in the DELWAQ discussion forum.




DELWAQ is the engine of the D-Water Quality and D-Ecology programmes of the Delft3D suite. It is based on a rich library from which users and developers can pick relevant substances and processes to quickly put water and sediment quality models together.

This processes library covers many aspects of water quality and ecology, from basic tracers, dissolved oxygen, nutrients, organic matter, inorganic suspended matter, heavy metals, bacteria and organic micro-pollutants, to complex algae and macrophyte dynamics. High performance solvers enable the simulation of long periods, often required to capture the full cycles of the processes being modelled.

DELWAQ incorporates over 30 years of experiences in water quality and ecology modelling and we constantly update and extend this system. Later this year, we will include detailed morphology processes in DELWAQ and for 2014, we will include our unique particle tracking solver in the DELWAQ engine.

Note that the finite volume approach underlying DELWAQ allows it to be coupled to both the structured grid hydrodynamics of the current Delft3D version and the upcoming D-Flow Flexible Mesh engine (1D-2D-3D) of the Delft3D suite.

'DELWAQ in open source' is our invitation to all leading experts to collaborate in further development and research in the field of water quality, ecology and morphology using Delft3D.


Downloading the source code:

After signing in at the community website, you will have access to the Delft3D subversion repository in which we maintain the DELWAQ source code.

This gives you access to daily updates of the source code, if you wish.

See download for more information about downloading the source code via subversion.
