Delft3D is a 3D modeling suite to investigate hydrodynamics, sediment transport and morphology and water quality for fluvial, estuarine and coastal environments.

version 7565 installed on our systems is non-functional. Please use the latest one available that you get with module load delft3d.


Delft3D comes with a number of run_* scripts that are expected to be used with the Sun Grid Engine job scheduler and the MPICH library. Compute Canada environment, however, uses Open MPI by default, and our scheduler is SLURM. To illustrate how one can run Delft3D under SLURM, we have provided submission scripts to run computational examples supplied with the software.

To copy examples into your home directory follow these steps:

$ module load delft3d
$ cp -a $EBROOTDELFT3D/examples ~/

Test cases within the ~/examples/ directory contain scripts that you can run with SLURM using a command such as this one:

$ sbatch --account=def-$USER

The ~/examples/readme.examples file provides a summary of the results.
