SMS:1D River Conceptual Model

From XMS Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

SMS uses a conceptual model (coverages of centerlines, and cross-sections) to define the hydraulic model, but at some point this conceptual model must be mapped to an equivalent topologic model representation for a Hydraulic model. HEC-RAS, for example, is defined as reaches and cross sections. Each reach and section has appropriate stationing defined from the spatial nature of the conceptual model. When choosing this command a schematic of the river is made for the appropriate model. The example below shows the reach (small boxes at the beginning of each reach) and section icons of the schematic for an HEC-RAS model. In the Hydraulic Modeling module the schematic is generally used as the view of the model.
