FUDAA-MASCARET 3.5 released

The new release of Fudaa-Mascaret (3.5) is now available for download.

This version includes the following improvements:

  • New Newton algorithm for automatic calibration by automatic differentiation
  • Improved pre-processing of profiles (3D visualisation)
  • New post-processing of tracers concentration by colour-coding

Looking for mirrors - worldwide

The openTELEMAC-MASCARET team is looking for volunteer universities/institutes/organisations to host regional mirrors of the TELEMAC SVN repository and download area.

The system SVN repository is currently hosted in Europe. We have received feedback from users around the world regarding slow download times in other regions. We are therefore looking for volunteers in Oceania, Asia, Northern America, Southern America and Africa to host mirrors of the repository, in order to reduce the download time for users in these regions. Once installed, you do not have anything to do but keep a live internet connection as the mirrors will be automatically update based on the main repository ... and we will help you setting it up.

This is a great opportunity to get further involved in the openTELEMAC-MASCARET system and gain greater insight into the latest developments. You will also contribute to the distribution of open-source software and maybe take a larger role in its developments.

Please pass these details to your management and IT departments - if your organisation is interested, please contact us via: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

FUDA-MASCARET 3.4 released

The FUDA-MASCARET 3.4 release (part of TELEMAC-MASCARET v8.0) is now available on the download page. This includes the following changes:

  • No more limitation on the number of hydraulic laws (new XML steering file)
  • Improvements (corrections and new features) of the pre- and post-processing
  • Compatibility with 64-bit OS

FUDA-MASCARET 3.3 released

The FUDA-MASCARET 3.3 release is now available on the download page. This includes the following changes:

  • New algorithm for the casiers

  • Addition of the option 'Reduced momentum equation' for the unsteady subcritical engine
  • Addition of the option 'Lateral inflow for the momentum equation'
  • New zooming and panning functionalities for the network editor
  • Addition of section georeferencing management
  • Improved look & feel (OS-dependant)

This is the last version using the DAMOCLES .cas file, as future releases will use XML. This is also the last version compatible with 32-bit systems.

Version v6p3 released

The v6p3 version is officially released today.

New functionalities

Some of the key new features of this version are:

  • Internal coupling waves-currents and sediment transport;
  • TOMAWAC is now fully compatible with parallel processing;
  • Drogues or floating bodies now work in parallel in TELEMAC-2D and 3D.

Many other new features are available, for the full set of changes since v6p2 see the feature log.

New module

The new DREDGESIM module (now called NESTOR) has been integrated in the system. DREGESIM has been developed by the University of the German Federal Armed Forces in Munich on behalf of BAW, and as its name indicates, is used for modelling of dredging.
A description of all available modules is provided on this page.

Automatic installer

In order to help with the installation of the system, we have created an automatic installer for Windows that will install the TELEMAC system and all the other required software (compiler, python, svn...), and configure the whole. The installer now automatically installs the system in parralel. A version for Linux is planned for the future

 

New code structure

We have modified the structure of the former TELEMAC system to help with the coming merge with the MASCARET system. It also follows structures of other known open source software, and makes the tree more logical and easier to understand. You can find details on the TELEMAC source code structure on the source code wiki page.

Updated release policy

Rather than only creating a yearly tag "v6p3" (read-only snapshot of the development trunk), we have created a branch called "v6p3", which allows us to fix bugs over its life span (if there are any). As a result, the branch "v6p3" is a moving target.

For users who need a fixed release, particularly for quality control procedures in consultancy studies, we will also be creating tags "v6p3r0" (release 0), "v6p3r1" (release 1) etc., to keep up with the branch "v6p3". These tags will be created on a monthly basis or as necessary depending on the number of changes made to the branch "v6p3". Finally, you will note that the first (v6p3r0) was release early August and that following the feedback of a few enthusiasts, we have now created v6p3r1. This tag is our stable version for v6p3.
