Ocean Dynamics (2020), De Goede, E.D. - Science in the spotlight: Historical overview of 2D and 3D hydrodynamic modelling of shallow water flows in the Netherlands - Delft3D Flexible Mesh
Delft3D FM Open Source Community
The worldwide open source release is scheduled for 2020.
For now, as (1) the 1D-2D-3D architecture is still subject to change and (2) we have to focus our limited resources, the access to the code is limited to a small group of 320+ Partners in Development worldwide.
This webportal facilitates the Partners in Development to come together to share knowledge and to brainstorm on new features. Together, we are continuously improving the source code.
The Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite (Delft3D FM) will be the successor of the current Delft3D 4 Suite (structured, regular grids).For the Delft3D 4 Suite community, click here.
Our development team is working hard to make all components of Delft3D FM available in open source, both computational engines and Graphical User Interface components (GUI). For now, only DELWAQ, RTC-TOOLS and SWANare available in open source, which are the computational engines of D-Water Quality, D-Real Time Control and D-Waves, respectively. The key component of Delft3D FM is the D-Flow Flexible Mesh (D-Flow FM) engine for hydrodynamical simulations on unstructured grids in 1D-2D-3D. As long as the 1D-2D-3D architecture of D-Flow FM is subject to change, the access to the D-Flow FM code will be limited to a small group of Partners in Development.We anticipate having D-Flow FM in open source for everyone in 2020, but it could become 2021.
