Delft3D FM Suite 2D3D

To enable us to live safely along our shores, we need effective coastal and marine management. We must also protect ourselves against river and pluvial flooding. On the other hand, we need that water for transport, irrigation, energy, cooling, recreation, environmental protection and as a source of drinking water. In response to these challenges, Deltares has developed a powerful modelling suite called the Delft3D FM Suite 2D3D, focusing primarily on coastal, estuarine and river environments.

The suite is designed for use by domain experts and non-experts alike, which may range from consultants and engineers or contractors, to regulators and government officials, all of whom are active in one or more of the stages of the design, implementation and management cycle.

Some areas of applications

  • Tide and wind-driven flow;
  • Drying and flooding of inter-tidal flats;
  • Density driven flow due to density gradients of non-uniform temperature and salinity concentration distributions;
  • Horizontal transport of matter on large and small scales;
  • Hydrodynamic impact of engineering works such as land reclamation, breakwaters and dikes;
  • Thermal recirculation of cooling water discharges from a powerplant.


Some of the typical key features of Delft3D FM Suite 2D3D are:

  • the suite gives direct access to state-of-the-art process knowledge, accumulated and developed at one of the world’s most renowned hydraulic institutes;
  • the Graphical User Interface (GUI), based on Delta Shell, is one of the most user-friendly in the market:
    • Central map with spatial editor
    • Customizable and dockable window views
    • Connectivity to online data bases
    • Batch running through Python scripting interfaces
  • all modules show a high degree of integration and interoperability.
