Storms with RMA2


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm a student in the ENIT (National Institute of Engineer in Tunisia), we have a license for the SMS 8.1

I'm looking for the effect of pressure gradients on the hydrodynamic of a lagoon. I've only the SMS 8.1 to work with, and I've tried to simulate storms in order to get similar effects.

The problems are :

- the simulation doesn't consider the data entered in RMA2 model control (they are always deleted after saving)

- the BC file doesn't consider the BWS card when I save the RMA2

-I'm taking the Tref = 2hrs, and the simulation seems to consider storm from the begenning (NSTORM=1)

- I've tried to enter the BWS card manually in the BC file, but the result is similar to a simulation without storms

Note that I'm trying to simulate a test (rectangular geometry with a depth about 4 meters), and I'm using the rma2v435 model. I'm also using a generic formula for winds but I don't define thems.

I didn't use SMS before and in my institute no body can show me how to use the storms application (no body's worked on)

Thank you for help.
