SMS:ADH Hot Start Initial Conditions
| This article is for a model that is under development by Aquaveo and its partners.
The model is not available to the public at this time. It is not known when or if the model will be released.
The content may not apply to current or older versions.
This window can be accessed by the ADH | Hot Start Initial Conditions menu item. ADH requires that at least an initial depth data set is defined to start a simulation. ADH can not start with a completely dry domain.
The initial condition data sets will be generated and appear in the "ADH Hot Start" folder of the Project Explorer. This folder and the data sets are locked for editing except from this dialog.
Constant water surface / Constant depth / Use defined data set radio group specifies the method for defining the initial depth data set. The Constant water surface control group includes the Elevation real number edit field which only allows elevations greater than the maximum mesh elevation. This produces a fully flooded domain with a flat horizontal water surface. The Constant depth control group similarly includes the Depth positive real number edit field. The depth value is applied to every node to create a water surface which is offset from the mesh geometry. The Use defined data set control group allows for the selection of an existing scalar data set located in the Project Explorer via Select Data Set... button. The name and time step information (if transient) of the selected data set will appear below this button.
Specify velocity check box specifies whether an initial velocity data set will be included and if checked, enables the Constant velocity / Use defined data set method specification radio group. The Constant velocity control group includes X and Y velocity component real number edit fields. The composite velocity vector will be applied to every node in the domain. The Use defined data set control group allows for the selection of an existing vector data set located in the Project Explorer via Select Data Set... button. The name and time step information (if transient) of the selected data set will appear below this button.
