On this second day, we will focus on Hydrodynamics (ocean, coastal, estuarine and lake).


Other topics that might be of interest to you:

DAY 1: Hydrology and hydrodynamics (river, rural and urban)

DAY 3: Sediment transport and morphology

DAY 4: Water quality and ecology


4-day Delft3D - User Days 2018

The Delft3D - User Days during the Delft Software Days (DSD-INT 2018) provide a unique venue for all Delft3D Flexible Mesh (Delft3D FM), Delft3D 4 and SOBEK users and developers worldwide to present the latest Delft3D applications, new scientific insights in modelling, the open source developments and our latest services, such as Compute as a Service (CaaS), Model as a Service (MaaS) and Data as a Service (DaaS).

From 2013 – 2018, 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, hydrology and real time control, using the modules D-Flow Flexible Mesh, D-Waves, D-Morphology, D-Water Quality, D-Hydrology and D-Real Time Control, respectively. The results on coastal, estuarine, river, rural and urban applications will be demonstrated during the Delft3D User Days 2018.
