The Delft3D - User Days during the Delft Software Days (DSD-INT 2017) provide a unique venue for all Delft3D Flexible Mesh (Delft3D FM) and Delft3D 4 users and developers worldwide to present the latest Delft3D applications, new scientific insights in modelling, and the latest open source developments.


From 2013 – 2017, several Delft3D beta testers worldwide have carried out practical applications and benchmark studies with the Delft3D FM Suite, including hydrodynamics (1D-2D-3D), waves, morphology, water quality, ecology and real time control, using the modules D-Flow Flexible Mesh, D-Waves, D-Morphology, D-Water Quality, and D-Real Time Control, respectively. The results on coastal, estuarine, river, rural and urban applications will be demonstrated during the Delft3D User Days 2017.


On this day, we will focus on Hydrodynamics.
