Coastal Hydrodynamics – A Delft3D Flexible Mesh training in Coastal Hydrodynamics (for US and Canadian users)
During this Delft3D FM course, attendees will gain a basic theoretical understanding of Delft3D FM hydrodynamic capabilities and functionalities. Moreover, attendees will learn how to apply the software for research or consultancy studies to simulate hydrodynamics.
When utilizing Delft3D FM for modeling, attendees will be able to retrieve theoretical and practical knowledge gained in this course.
Theoretical: attendees understand
- Difference between the different modules of the model suite
- The advantages and disadvantages of different meshes/grids
- The basic assumptions behind Delft3D Flexible Mesh
Practical: attendees will know
- How to create a mesh and matching bed levels
- Set up a hydrodynamic simulation in Deltashell
- Inspect and analyze model results
Who should participate
This course is aimed at project engineers, researchers, PhD students with background knowledge in hydrodynamics (e.g. you know what a tide and storm surge are).
We’ll be providing an online version of this course. We will have interactive sessions with a Q&A. By keeping the session intimate (with only 10 participants per trainer), we can ensure there is enough time and attention for all questions and discussions.
In preparation of the training, we’ll send you all the material and will ask you to install the stand-alone Delft3D Flexible Mesh application on your own machine. While attending the training, it will be essential that you have a sufficiently fast internet connection to support a video call, as well as a headset.
The use of Windows is required for the Delft3D courses. For the Technical Specifications of the Delft3D FM Suite, click here.
