  1. I see from the FAQ the list of needed Inputs. What is the minimum data needed to develop output for the following riverine system? A secondary river with known multiple upland inflow (rates and timing), nodal Attributes (land-use), topography (200 to 300 MSL) meteorological forcing input (only precipitation), and boundary conditions which discharges into a primary river. System has not Tidal characteristics, wave radiation stress forcing
  2. I am a newbie, learning SMS (version 12.1.6). I have got a couple of ADCIRC output files: fort.14 and maxele.63. I am trying to create maximum water level grid based on these outputs. I am able to open the fort.14 in SMS and visualize the nodes/elements. However, when I try to open maxele.63, I get an error message saying "The file maxele.63 does not match the current geometry.". When I click OK, another error message pop up saying "Syntax errors encountered. The file data was only partially loaded.". While looking into these files, I find that there are 2,034,768 nodes in maxele.63 whereas fort.14 has 3,352,598 nodes. Is this variation in node number an issue or am I doing anything wrong here? Thank you in advance, MS
  3. Good day everyone! I am conducting now a research about storm surges using ADCIRC through SMS. But I have problems on my fort.19 files. I am inserting the tidal boundaries but in the Model Control, the "Input column" about fort. 19 indicates "No". So I solved this by creating my fort.19 manually. and then when I run the program and inserted fort.22, the program only utilized the fort.19 but not the fort.22 based on the surge heights. Can someone help me on this? Thank you. Also I cannot paste the my file based on the instruction given to me by Aquaveo. Attached are the files that I am using. Thanks a lot!
  4. SMS 11.2 has been updated! The 32-bit full installation can be downloaded here. The 64-bit full installation can be downloaded here. The Tutorials can be found here. Bug fixes can be found here.
  5. Is there anyway to export a weir in ADCIRC? Or is there a way to view the node id numbers of the nodes contained in the nodestrings which form the weir? Thanks.
  6. Please can someone provide insight into renumbering multiple boundaries logically using the ADCIRC unstructured mesh. Clockwise I have 4 boundaries: 1. An ocean boundary that is renumbered logically [1:106] which will be VARIABLE. 2. A section of a large island (Isle of Wight) classed as "mainland". 3. Another ocean boundary (The Solent) which will be CONSTANT. 4. Then the actual mainland (South coast England.). For input into SWAN I need to reference [start ,end] node locations of each boundary. Renumbering only renumbers boundary 1 sensibly, leaving ocean boundary 2 and both the mainland boundaries randomly numbered. I would ideally like the numbering to be sequential through all the boundaries, or at least the two oceans. I have tried merging 1,2, and 3 to create a logical numbering system, but am struggling to "unmerge" the island section. Any hints/tips/help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers Emma
  7. EDIT: FYI for anyone else having this issue, I figured it out by letting SMS create the fort.22 file by inputting the time series data as a *.dat file and using the "mesh2d" option. This allowed the time series data to be input directly to the ADCIRC mesh as a dataset. You then specify the frequency of the time steps and the data sets in the ADCIRC model control | Wind Tab for NWS=5. See the following wiki page for the format of the .dat file(s). Cheers. Hello, Does anyone have a sample fort.22 file that they could provide that loads into SMS v11.1.11? I have created a fort.22 file, space delimited, from hourly NOAA NDBC data and I have followed the documentation at It appears every time I load the fort.22 file (NWS=5), I receive an error, "unable to read vector data from file." Pressure appears to load fine and at the different time steps I specified, however vector data does not correctly translate to the model domain. What am I missing here? Is there another way to load the data into the model mesh? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Joe The mesh has 8265 nodes. Sample of my fort.22 is below where Col1 is mesh node id, Col2 is Ux, Col3 is Vy, & Col4 is P(mH20): 1 0.27366 0.80985 5.3515 2 0.19198 0.87327 1.8281 3 0.036356 0.35337 3.3343 4 0.37083 0.82028 6.0032 5 0.28038 0.55851 0.48982 6 0.065336 0.55637 3.2594 ... 8261 0.8227 0.83641 4.6159 8262 0.58569 0.48934 7.7293 8263 0.82307 0.2094 7.9067 8264 0.16401 0.50619 9.3605 8265 0.68254 0.054285 9.8956 1 0.27366 0.80985 5.3515 2 0.19198 0.87327 1.8281 3 0.036356 0.35337 3.3343 4 0.37083 0.82028 6.0032 5 0.28038 0.55851 0.48982 6 0.065336 0.55637 3.2594 ... 8261 0.8227 0.83641 4.6159 8262 0.58569 0.48934 7.7293 8263 0.82307 0.2094 7.9067 8264 0.16401 0.50619 9.3605 8265 0.68254 0.054285 9.8956 ...
  8. Hi All, I am doing hydrodynamic modeling using ADCIRC. I just wonder if there is a way to extract elevations from the global output file fort.63 given the interested locations? I understand that you can specify the locations in the fort.15 (control file) before the run, but what if there are locations you need to check after the run has been completed? Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi, I'm in the process of doing one of the ADCIRC simple test cases (this one ). Output for this example is given at three observation stations with specified coordinates, so I would like to make those via SMS. I see an option in the ADCIRC menu to "Create Observation Stations," but it is grayed out. Is there a way to create these stations in SMS? Otherwise I will try to do it by just altering the fort.15 file. Also, is it possible to read in and display output from the observation stations? Thanks, Ryan
  10. Hi all, I am trying to produce a simple fort.22 using the Dynamic Holland model (NWS=8). I am trying to run a simple idealized storm. In my testing, I used SMS to create the storm track and populate the fort.22 file with basic information like, time step, radius to max wind, max wind speed, central pressure, ROCI. I recall the fort.22 file generated by SMS had far less fields than the 35 described here. Unfortunately, I no longer have access to a machine with SMS and deleted that example fort.22 file. I am trying to produce this simple file manually. Does anyone have an example of a simple fort.22 that SMS creates or can anyone provide me the required parameters other than the full 35? Another way of asking this is, those with ADCIRC knowledge, which of the 35 fields can be left blank. Thanks
  11. Is there a way ( I am trying in SMS 11.1 ) to have SMS automatically put nodestring boundaries around the entire mesh boundary? Much like Mesh to Map; Mesh Boundaries -> Polygons. It can be a pain if you have many islands to go around and individually click out each boundary.
  12. Hi, i'm wondering after seeing the fort 20 file format, whether it can accommodate flux boundaries on two land boundaries?? Can any one put some light on this issue., Thanks in advance Karunakar kintada.
