  1. There is no easy way to back track and start over without using the map module to generate the mesh in the first place. In your case you could either delete the elements manually from the mesh or convert the mesh to map and make adjustments from there and then regenerate the mesh. Depending on the amount of elements in your model, the second option could take a long time to convert to map and then back to mesh. Cameron
  2. There is a newer version of SRH2D that writes out to the xmdf format which can be read into SMS. Aquaveo or the SRH2D developer has a copy of the newer version.
  3. Heimo, Would please explain how to the files in the TsPoint.zip you posted above? Thanks, Cameron Jenkins
  4. If I am going to model piers, I generate the mesh around the piers so that the elements start out small next to the piers and get bigger as they get farther away.
  5. The older versions of SMS can not handle newer CAD files. I would save the file as an older CAD, a GIS shape file, or create an geo-referenced image of the bridge pier data you want to see. Cheers, Cameron
  6. You would need to specify a nodestring for each boundary, in your case you would have three of them. The run would have to be dynamic to account for the change in flow out of the model.

    Undo Tool

    There is no undo tool in SMS. The best advice I can give you is to save often and save as a different name every time you are going to make a big change to your model. Cheers, Cameron Jenkins
  8. When I want to get a mesh and data sets associated with it into ArcGIS, I use the save as "Tabular Data Files" option and save out each data set I care about. I then bring it into ArcGIS and create a TIN using the data set and the mesh boundary as the TIN limits. This allows me more freedom with how to visualize the data. I have attached an example showing depth of flow. Cheers, Cameron Jenkins
  9. Did you set up a coordinate projection for the project? If you are taking values from Google Earth, you will need to make sure that the projection in SMS is the same as it is in Google Earth. Cheers, Cameron
  10. Fabio, Send your files and problem to support@aquaveo.com and they will be able to help you figure out why it is crashing. I would also download the latest version of SMS 11.0 Beta to see if it is still a problem. Cheers, Cameron Jenkins
  11. What I usually do is convert the mesh to a map coverage and then create a shape file from the map coverage. Cheers, Cameron Jenkins
  12. Nicki, What version of SMS are you using? The SMS 11.0 beta now has a raster module and can read in many different formats, look in the SMS 11.0 beta help file for more info. If you are using version SMS 10.1 then the simplest thing to do would be to convert it to an xyz and import it in as a scatter set. To answer your second question, there are certain GIS items that can be read in without "enable ArcObjects" checked, but it is limited. SMS does not automatically check this (would be nice if it did) and so yes you would have to enable it before you read in the file. The reason behind t

    It was in the software when I worked at Aquaveo a few years ago, but was not released to the public yet. The XMS wiki has a couple sentences about it, but not much. Cheers, Cameron
  14. I used the example files in my thesis, but do not have them anymore. I had to contact one of the authors for the files. I think the error you are getting can happen when the model results are garbage and did not really converge. Cameron
  15. One of the links Chad provided has a link to Mark Ipson's thesis on sediment transport in FESWMS, which has an appendix that is a tutorial for sediment transport in FESWMS. I have provided the link below: http://contentdm.lib.byu.edu/ETD/image/etd1542.pdf Cheers, Cameron
