This year's Symposium 'Next Generation Hydro Software (NGHS)' will be the venue of the launch of the Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite 2016 worldwide.

The Delft3D FM Suite can simulate storm surges, typhoons / hurricanes, tsunamis, detailed flows and water levels, waves, sediment transport and morphology, water quality and ecology and is capable of handling the interactions between these processes.

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. Like Delft3D-FLOW, D-Flow FM is capable of handling 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. Furthermore, designed for policymakers, D-Flow FM is available on a Touch Table for 2D top view and even 3D interactive modelling with all the stakeholders. Within the Delft-FEWS operational framework, D-Flow FM can offer 24/7 forecasts. Forecasts, predictions and uncertainties can be visualized on dedicated websites, using the Delta Viewer technology.

D-Flow FM is the successor of Delft3D-FLOW and SOBEK-FLOW. It is the result of five years of research funded by Deltares and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment.

In 2013, 2014 and 2015, several Delft3D users worldwide have carried out practical applications with Delft3D Flexible Mesh. The results will be demonstrated during this symposium and the Delft3D User Meeting the following day. 

Note that during the DSD-INT several Delft3D 4 and Delft3D Flexible Mesh related workshops, user meetings and courses will be organized.
