SOBEK and Delft3D

Delft3D Flexible Mesh as the new integrated water modelling and simulation suite

Deltares is working to integrate and improve our hydro software. Important technological innovations make up the new Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite (Delft3D FM) for integral simulations. Delft3D FM combines proven technology from the hydrodynamic engines of Delft3D 4 and SOBEK 2 and adds flexible administration. The new, advanced software will allow water managers and modelers to do their work better and faster.

SOBEK functionality in Delft3D Flexible Mesh

Delft3D FM will be the aggregated successor of SOBEK-Rural and DUFLOW for irrigation and drainage systems, SOBEK-RE and SOBEK-River for river systems, and SOBEK-Urban for sewerage and urban drainage systems. Delft3D FM is set up within the Delta Shell Framework, providing additional functionality, extensive compatibility and an intuitive user interface. The current performance (simulation time) of the prototypes of Delft3D FM with 1D-2D functionality, is matching the performance of DUFLOW and SOBEK-RE.



Availability of SOBEK

SOBEK 2 will be provided to you as part of our SOBEK Service Packages as long as not all functionality of SOBEK 2 is available in the new Delft3D Flexible Mesh Suite.
