Interested in hydromorphodynamics modeling? This 2-day training will get you started modeling Hydromorphodynamics using the Delft3D 4.02 Suite (structured/regular grids). Delft3D 4 has been designed to simulate the complex interactions between waves, currents, sediment transport and bathymetry over time-scales of days to decades. This allows you use Delft3D for a wide variety of morphodynamic modeling studies such as:

  • Coastal areas including beaches, channels, sand bars, harbour moles, offshore breakwaters, groynes and other structures. The coastal areas may be intersected by tidal inlets or rivers, parts of it may be drying and flooding;
  • Rivers including bars, river bends (spiral flow effect), bifurcations, non-erodible layers, dredging operations and having arbitrary cross-sections (with over bank flow). Various structures may be included;
  • Estuaries including tidal inlets and river deltas influenced by tidal currents, river discharges and density currents due to sediment. Sediment can be non-cohesive (sand) or cohesive (silt). The areas may include drying and flooding, channels and man-made structures, e.g. docks, jetties and land reclamations.

The software and user manuals can be downloaded from the open source website, which provides a platform for information sharing in the Delft3D user community. 

Bring your own laptop with Windows 7 - 10 installed. If you do not have the Delft3D software we will provide you with a working version. Make sure you have administrator rights to install software.


After your course registration, Deltares USA will send you an e-mail including payment details.
