SMS can't find .dat file

4 posts in this topic

I have various simulation runs within SMS 12.1 to demonstrate natural, existing, and proposed conditions. To create each, all I’ve done is duplicate the simulations, boundary conditions, and meshes and then renamed and edited them for the new scenario. I’ve run 6 different scenarios, and none have given me a problem. The most recent one I created however says that it can’t find the .dat file and crashes after it fails to run and shuts me out of the program. I created this one the same way I created the others and can’t figure out why it can’t find the .dat file and keeps crashing. If I run the model check it says nothing is wrong, and then a few seconds later the program just closes. I’ve searched the forums and can’t find anything on this issue! Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated, or if you could point me in the right direction for help that would be great! Thank you!

Is this an SRH2D question?

If so, it sounds like SRH Pre is failing. There is a "SimulationCaseName"_OUT.dat file in the output directory that should have been created. Opening that file in a text editor may show you an error that SRH Pre ran into.
