  1. What you need to input here is the time when the NAPL mass is removed from the block. For example you could enter a number larger than the total simulation time to prevent excavation.
  2. Hydromar, Thank you for contacting us with your request. If you have already downloaded the software from our website aquaveo.com, you may obtain an evaluation license by going to the Help menu and selecting Register | Request Evaluation License and submitting your information. To purchse the software please contact our sales department at 801-302-1400 or sales@aquaveo.com.
  3. Jose, Are you trying to visualize the data in the plot wizard or create an animation or something else? Josh Schultze
  4. It depends on how you set up your model. Wave height is a specifiable solution output. For more information and to get a better idea of what STWAVE can do check here.
  5. Katie, If you have a current maintenance license, you may download and upgrade to the newest version of WMS which is 8.3 I have been able to successfully load in the Utah GIS tiff's without incident in 8.2 and 8.3. I do not have a version of 8.0 on my machine, but a coworker does and he was able to load in the tiff using a quick workaround. If you do not wish to upgrade use this workaround as follows: open the tiff in the paint program and save it as a jpg and then load it into WMS. Let us know if you need anything else.
  6. What is happening when you load the file in? Are you being prompted to convert your TIFF file to a JPEG? If so, do you generate image pyramids? What are your system specifications? (RAM, processor, et al.)
  7. Hamid, Perhaps there is a bug is SMS which is causing this crash. Will you send us your files so we may duplicate it? If the size is less than 25MB you may email them to support@aquaveo.com. If they are larger, you will need to upload them to our ftp site. I will provide instruction on how to do this, if necessary. Thank you for the questions.

  8. Hamid, Below you will find some suggestions for model stability using porosity: Crashes are usually caused by problems related to the grid, the boundary conditions, or model parameters. Model stability requires a low Courant number throughout the domain. SMS computes an approximate maximum timestep to maintain a Courant number below 0.5. You may want to lower the timestep even more. Additionally, you may want to truncate the computational domain to areas with depth above a specified minimum. Another option is to increase resolution by using smaller computational cells. Damping layers should be 5-10 cells wide. Generally, avoid placing damping or porosity layers along structures and shorelines. Wave makers are more stable on the edges of the domain. Therefore, generally speaking, the wave maker should be placed on the boundary of the domain in constant (or nearly constant) depth water. (The SMS interface offers to extend the grid and transition to constant depth if a wave maker is created in a location with more that 20% variation in depth.) This is especially true in real world applications where reflected waves are of no concern. Also, when simulating large waves, the greater stability of external wavemakers may be required. Wave makers should be placed far enough from shore to avoid interaction between the wave maker and reflecting waves. This is because the external boundary behind the wave maker is treated as a vertical wall. Regards, Josh Schultze XMS Technical Support (801) 691-5530 support@aquaveo.com
