  1. I did use the source arc method and it did reduce the number of problem areas substantial. In the past, I had redistributed the vertices in the arcs in a ridiculously fine pattern, thinking that would solve it, but it did not. The source arc redistribution, changed the way the Patch Section connected to each other. While this did help out with the exceeding the interior angle problem, my model still will not converge. I may post about that in a new post. I do not want to get off topic. Thanks for the help.
  2. I keep exceeding the interior angle in my mesh quality. I have increased and decreased the number of vertices without any significant changes. How can I reduce or correct the problem. The channel is steep. I have included two screenshots to show this. I am focusing on the model one problem at a time. I will add the culvert after I get the mesh quality solved. As a side note, the model fails to converge and stops early even with an extremely small time stamp of 0.1 sec which takes several hours to run.
  3. You had the correct solution. Thank you for showing me this!
  4. I used your suggestion in my other question and selected the PreSRH-2D tab and everything was there. So sometimes it shows up without selecting the PreSRH-2D tab and sometimes it does not show up. But now I know they are there. This has helped me with the model ending early problem. Thanks Again.
  5. I had just reran the model again, to look at the SRH-2D tab that you had circled in another question. I did not change anything, just did the save, export, and launch SRH-2D. It said that it was unloading the other run under the same name. It did not have any text in the command line. The results were the same as the run before (which had text in the command line). Really interesting.
  6. I agree, but I think it may be crashing in the background before it gets a chance to post the text. It seems that if this happens, it will happen consistently and continuously happen until the program is happy with whatever changes I have done. For example, changing the boundary conditions or changing the mesh.
  7. My model ends the run earlier than expected. It was set to run for 10 hours. It stopped at 1 hr and 35 minutes. If the model crashed early, how can I tell what happened?
  8. When I run a model, sometimes there is text in the command line, and sometimes there is not. When there is text in the command line, it appears that the model has a better chance of the results looking somewhat as expected. If there is no text in the command line, then the model will run and put out results, but they may not what be what would be expected. Does the lack of text, indicates that it crashing in the background?
  9. Thank You. You were right. I had redistributed the vertices before, using the select all, and it did not work. So I deleted everything and started again and wanted to ask the question from the most basic starting point. I am not sure why it did not work before. But after you said this, I thought that I would try it again redistributing one arc at a time instead of selecting all the arcs. It worked. I also went back and re selected all of the arcs at one time, and it worked. So I am not sure what happened the first time I tried to fix it. Thanks Again!
  10. Has anyone seen this message? Any thoughts? I created the mesh generator from a 2D Cad File, so there should not be any overlapping areas (cells?). As you can see, I was successful in creating a patch for the creek on the other side of the road. I realize that I do not have a scatter set yet and have selected a constant bathymetry type for now. I also realize that I need tons of work on the arc's and redistributing the vertices. I would like to make it past this error first.
