Delft3D – Getting Started course
Wednesday March 9 & Thursday March 10 (8:00–17:00)
As of 18 November 2015, the Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite 2016 (Delft3D FM) is available for download – introducing optimal modeling flexibility and ease in setting up new model grids, modifying existing ones, or locally increasing resolution, in a completely new graphical user interface.
The key component of Delft3D FM is the D-Flow Flexible Mesh (D-Flow FM) engine for hydrodynamic simulations. D-Flow FM, as the successor of Delft3D-FLOW and SOBEK-FLOW, is capable of handling structured grids, such as curvilinear grids, that provide very good performance in terms of computational speed and accuracy. In addition to this, the grid may also consist of triangles, quads, pentagons and hexagons. This provides optimal modelling flexibility and ease in setting up new model grids or modifying existing ones, or locally increasing resolution.
This 2-day course will get you started modeling hydrodynamics using both the new Delft3D FM and Delft3D 4 (structured/regular grids) on Day 1. On Day 2, you will learn how to deal with hydro-morphodynamics using Delft3D 4, as Delft3D 4 is still the mainstream suite for specialists in hydro-morphodynamic studies. It is also possible to continue your hydrodynamics practice using Delft3D FM and bring your own model; build grids and run model under guidance and supervison of Deltares Experts.
