DSD-INT 2019 - Delft3D FM Suite - Key advantages-Melger

  1. 1. D e l f t 3 D U s e r D a y s 2 0 1 9 Delft3D FM Suite – Key advantages Edward Melger
  2. 2. In a nutshell Delft3DUserDays2019 2 Unique integrated approach Delft3D FM offers one modelling environment for the simulation of storm surges, hurricanes, tsunamis, coastal, river and urban floods with detailed local flows and water levels, waves, sediment transport and morphology, including catchment hydrology, urban rainfall-runoff, water quality and ecology, and is capable of handling the interactions between these processes. It allows for combinations of flow in closed conduits (1D), such as sewer pipes and metro networks, and open water systems (1D,2D,3D), as well as a variety of real time hydraulic structure control, taking into account hydraulic, hydrological and environmental processes.
  3. 3. In a nutshell Delft3DUserDays2019 3 More flexibility in generating model grid Delft3D FM can handle 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. 1D- and 2D grids can be combined, either connecting adjacent grids or a 1D grid embedded in a 2D grid. Better computational performance The D-Flow Flexible Mesh (D-Flow FM) of the Delft3D FM Suite is the new software engine for hydrodynamical simulations on unstructured grids in 1D-2D-3D. This engine is up to 20x faster than the current SOBEK FLOW engine of the SOBEK 2 Suite for 1D and 1D2D modelling and is even faster than the structured Delft3D-FLOW engine of the Delft3D 4 Suite. It runs well on multicore PCs. High performance Delft3D FM supports parallel computations on large High-Performance Computing (HPC) clusters. High efficiency for one to hundreds of cores.
  4. 4. In a nutshell Delft3DUserDays2019 4 Openness Delft3D FM is open source software. No vendor lock-in. Everybody has access to the source code free of charge, for ever. Cloud services Delft3D FM runs in the cloud on Amazon, Azure, Google and other cloud providers using Docker and Kubernetes technology. 23.000+ community members in 214 countries Unique business and professional networking community for sharing Delft3D knowledge and experiences. Fully validated, tested, supported and documented releases Deltares delivers knowledge that makes a difference through high-quality, validated, user-friendly and well-documented software.
  5. 5. Delft3DUserDays2019 5 In a nutshell Amazing 3D visualizations of Delft3D FM results, using DFX It is still in an alpha development stage. However, it is quite capable of turning your model results into great looking videos with just a minimum of effort. The latest DFX release includes support for 1D-2D flood simulations, streamlines, visualizing of wind fields, realistic water, vertical scaling for morphology models, basic support for 3D layers plus special features such as 360° video, HoloLens and exporting to web.
