  1. Hi, I have a LIDAR DEM file (in ACSII Grid format loaded as a GIS object) that I am using to pull elevation for my mesh and cross sections. The vertical projection is NAVD88 US Survey Feet. However, every time I reopen my SMS file the units reset to meters. Chaning the project from local to NAVD88 and saving the SMS file does not help. Does anyone know a way to get the vertical project to be saved in GIS data? Thanks, Phillip

    SMS - Culvert Modeling Error

    When attempting to model a culvert, I get an error condition I don't recognize: Stopped in structure_culvert.f90 ICELL eror#5 Error Code is: 40589 I am not sure if this is an error within HY-8 or within SRH-2D. And the error code - is that referring to a cell ID? Thanks.
  3. Is it just me, or does the timestep window that allows you to scroll through model output not update to show the most recent (and possibly shorter) run results if that runs fails? I am currently attempting to run something for 30 minutes, and tinesteps up to 2 hours are visible, which were first generated by a successful run that ran for 2 hours. Thanks, Tom

  5. Hi forum folks, Does anybody know if SMS can still prepare the basic text input files for SRH-2D? I'd like to run my simulations on a separate machine like I use to do (back in the day). Now it seems like SMS is handling all coordination/communication with the SRH-2D solver internally... I see the potential benefits there, but while a simulation is running... I can't seem to use SMS at all.... So I'd like to have SMS prepare the input files needed for SRH-2D solver so I can run those on a separate machine, and or in the background so I can continue to use SMS tools... Usually, when I post something like this, the functionality exists (and there's a big red easy button that I've been overlooking...)... hoping that is the case here. thanks in advance! -d
  6. Has anybody had any luck adding multiple obstructions into the same simulation? I have two nearby bridges... it will let me link either one to a simulation, but not both at the same time... Documentation seems to suggest 99 is the limit, but I can't get past 1... thx, -d

    Link Boundary Condition

    Hello, Has anyone run into issues using the "link" boundary condition type, specifically with the SRH-2D preprocessor stalling when a link boundary condition type is used? Thanks!

    Exporting Geometry into RAS

    Hey everyone, I am confused on how to get my geometry into Hec Ras. I have looked at all the tutorials and it seems so simple, but for some reason, my Hec Ras model wrapper brings up an error with the simulation. The bottom line says that there is no such file or directory. How should I structure my files so that this doesn't happen? Any input is welcome Thanks
  9. Hi everybody, Both of groundwater modeling system(GMS) and surface water modeling system(SMS) are well known. Is it possible link them to evaluate flow exchange and pollution transport in river-aquifer interactions? Thank you for even the slightest mention about this. Azade

    Importing Mesh into HEC-RAS

    Hello, I am working with SMS Version 12.2 and try to import my created mesh into HEC-RAS. I already read the providet tutorial and everything workt out fine. But when i try the same with my own mesh I am not able to link the mesh with the HEC-RAS simulation ( Step 3.4 in the Tutorial). It used to be an easy step but I can´t find a solution for this problem. Any suggestions?

    SRH-2D Materials Coverage Errors

    Good Afternoon, I am having some strange issues with SRH-2D Materials Coverages within SMS 12.2.9. I created a materials coverage within SMS by converting a shapefile and the new materials file appeared to be correct. When I modified some of the polygons (within the newly created materials coverage) and performed the build polygons function I got an error renumbering message and now some of the previously assigned material types seemed to have changed. In addition, the description in the task bar at the bottom of the screen gives a different material type than I just assigned for some of the polygons. I believe the assigned type is being used in the calculations, but need to look into this further to be sure. It is taking a long time to assign materials (5-15 sec) to open the materials dialog. Has anyone had similar issues or have any possible suggestions for a solution? Thanks, Gary

    SMS GUI Problem

    When we updated to SMS 12.2, we are having serious problems with the main window display. After a few clicks, the main display window goes blank. So although the data is still there, you can't see it (or do anything to edit it). We have tried updating the refresh rate, we've updated all of our video drivers, and a few other solutions. Aquaveo is working on the problem, but they are reproduce it. Has anyone else had similar issues?
  15. Dear all, I am doing hurricane sandy analysis over Camden, New Jersey. I have two boundary conditions. My problem is during tuflow simulation water is flowing inside the grid at downstream. That, must not happen in practical condition. Any one can help me regarding this issues? I am also attaching screenshot of two time step. The upstream BC is at the lower south. TIA --Fahad

  17. Hello, I am trying to export velocity vectors to CAD, that are coverage based displayed with a fixed shaft length and absolute size (see Picture 1-SMS View). After using the “export to CAD” function from the context menu, the vectors will be exported, but now the resulting CAD file always contains velocity vectors displayed at each mesh node. The adjusted parameters from the vector options dialog seem to be ignored (see Picture 2 – Resulting CAD-View). Is it possible to export the velocity vectors maintaining the adjusted vector display options? Thank you

    Rainfall simulation in SMS

    Hi everybody, I have recently started using SMS. I have a question. I would like to use rainfall data (either gridded or point) as input instead of the "Flow vs. Time" upstream and "WSE vs. Time". Is it possible? Can anybody point me in the right direction? Any documentation I can read? Tutorials? TIA

    Usage of LandXML file in SMS

    Preface: Below is the XML coding produced by Autodesk Civil 3D (2014) Surface-> Export to LandXML Statement: The information provided on SMSWiki.com under SMS: LandXML Files nor SMS: Importing Non-native SMS Files adequately answers the following question. Question 1: Is the Code in Lines 1 through 15 acceptable to SMS or does it need to be modified in some manner? Statement: xmswiki.com/wiki/SMS:LandXML_Files states "SMS only supports a subset of the LandXML definition specific to TINs". For me this implies a user should be able to use a subset of LandXML code to build a finite element mesh. Question 2: Which is the correct dialog for importing Land XML for creation of a Mesh? A. File Import Wizard dialog B. Open FIle dialog C: Raster Module: File Menu D.

  21. HI all experts, 1. I am kinda new to SMS. My problem is, in the tutorial TUFLOW 2D simulation the data for the boundary conditions (Flow VS time) and (Head VS time) are in cms and meter unit. But when I put the data into SMS bc part it says at top that the units are in cfs and foot. So, I need to convert the original data provided in SMS tutorial in feet and then put in to BC part in SMS? 2. Also, I exported a dem of my study area from arcgis in to sms and converted to 2d scatter. But the values are almost 3 times less than that of in Arcgis. In Arcgis the vertical unit is in State plane US feet projection (for new jersey). I checked the projection in SMS. Its still the same. Also I put the planar and vertical unit in SMS to US feet. Then why I am having this 3 times less value in SMS. 3. Another problem is my dem is very high resolution (10 ft). When I do the 2d scatter conversion my whole SMS crashed and my pc got hanged totally. I can't even move my mouse. I checked one time. And saw that all of my 8gb of ram is used. Now, I am only working with a very very small are by upscaling the DEM. This works actually. But ultimately I need to analyzed the whole area for my research. So, should I need a high performance computer to do this. Please help me. Thanks in advance. --Fahad
  22. After experimenting with the node distribution features using the Bias and cubic spline , I found out that they produce more problems with the mesh network causing the program to become unstable. How do you undo the distribution features? For example two equivalent domains with the same specific spacing and 1st degree of bias look very different. I am trying to do away with the uneven/gradual distribution, but to no avail. Any advise or help would be great! Thanks!
  23. After creating a third simulation run using mesh generated by a different DEM, the simulation is not allowed to run, giving the following error message: " terminated with exit code 0, stopped in structure culvert *.f90, error code 8393" Then when I click out of that window, I get "ERROR: Could not open file *_XMDF.h5". This does not happen when using multiple simulations with the same mesh. Is there a way to run multiple simulations with different mesh? The two different mesh are generated from the same "Domain" based on different DEM layers. I look forward to any advice. Thanks!
  24. Hello, I have a point shapefile that I am trying to import into SMS as scatter data. The data was created in ArcMap and each point as an associated elevation. I was able to import it into SMS but it comes in under GIS data instead of scatter data. Is there a different way I should be brining in this data? I do not have access to GMS or WMS and was therefore unable to try the answers I found on those forums for similar situations. Thank you.
