Modelling Rivers

River

Rivers are natural water courses. They have vital contributions to the social and economical welfare of societies living along their course. They provide continuous, usually dependable, flow and supply of water. Accordingly, centralised civilisation began emerging independently along number of river valleys; e.g. the Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, the Indus and the Yellow Rivers. Since then, mankind has been in continuous struggle to understand and live in harmony with this gift/force of nature. Modelling rivers is the modern way to understand their behaviour and is an essential tool to tackle several river problems.

Delft3D is the state-of-the-art modelling framework for hydrodynamics, water quality, ecology, waves and morphology.

Using Visual Studio 17 to compile Delft3D

Using Visual Studio 17 to compile Delft3D

Hello all, I am trying to compile Delft3D using Visual Studio 2017, but I am not sure which VS 17 modules I should install. I have had to use VS 17 because I can’t find a version of Intel Fortran Compiler to download, that is compatible with VS 15. On this site’s source code instructions, it says:

Be sure that the following modules are installed in your VisualStudio (by default, they are not installed):
  • - "Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015"
    - "Microsoft Foundation Classes for C++"
    - "Windows 10 SDK"
    - "Windows 8.1 SDK and UCRT SDK"
    - "Visual C++ MFC for x86 and x64"
    - "C++/CLI support"
    - "C++ Universal Windows Platform tools"
    - "Common tools for Intel compiler projects"
    - "Intel(R) Software Manager"
    - "Intel(R) Fortran Expression Evaluator"
    - "Fortran IDE"
However, not all of these appear as options on VS 2017. I was wondering if anyone knew of the equivalent packages I should install, so that I can compile Delft3D without errors.
Alternatively if anyone knows how I could get ahold of a Intel Fortran 16 installer that would be great.
Thanks,Chris

Hi Chris,

I used Microsoft VS 2015 and Intel Parallel Studio 2018. Intell Parallel Studio needs a license but I was able to get a free license (for 1 year) since I am a student. So far, these two versions worked well for me.
