General Tab

ADCIRC Model Control dialog showing the General Parameters tab

The General parameters tab contains the following:

  • Simulation description section –
    • Project title (RUNDES) – Title for the project run. 32 alphanumeric character limit.
    • Run ID (RUNID) – ID for the project run. 24 alphanumeric character limit.
  • Run options section – Selecting anything other than "None: cold start" will cause a Select button to appear. Clicking it will bring up the Choose file dialog to allow selection of the desired file.
    • Hot start file (initial conditions) (IHOT) – This option allows choosing a file to initialize the values of water level and velocity for a simulation. The files must have been saved from a previous run using the same finite element grid.
      • "None: cold start" – Default option
      • "ASCII fort.17"
      • "Binary fort.67"
      • "Binary fort.68"
      • "NetCDF fort.67.nc"
      • "NetCDF fort.68.nc"
      • "NetCDF4 fort.67.nc"
      • "NetCDF4 fort.68.nc"
    • Run parallel ADCIRC – Used if the computer has multiple processors and the user wishes to take advantage of them. Two options appear when this option is turned on:
      • Number of computational processors – Enter the number of computational processors.
      • Number of I/O processors – Enter the number of I/O processors.
  • Bottom stress/friction – NOLIBF – Controls the type of bottom stress parameterization used in a 2D ADCIRC run. The following options are available in the drop-down:
    • "Linear bottom friction"
      • Friction coefficient (TAU) – Bottom friction is a linear function of depth-averaged velocity and TAU is the corresponding linear friction coefficient (units of 1/sec). In this case it is strongly recommended that "TAU0 = TAU" (used with "NOLIBF = 0"). If some type of spatially varying bottom friction is specified in the NWP section, this input is ignored, and the friction coefficients will be imported from the nodal attributes file.
    • "Quadratic bottom friction"
      • Friction coefficient (CF) – 2DDI bottom friction coefficient used in ADCIRC unless spatially varying bottom friction is specified using nodal attributes. If Manning’s n is the spatially variable friction coefficient, then CF will be used as the floor on the equivalent quadratic friction coefficient. If some other type of spatially varying bottom friction is specified in the NWP section, then CF is ignored entirely.
    • "Hybrid nonlinear bottom friction" – In deep water, the friction coefficient is constant and a quadratic bottom friction law results. In shallow water the friction coefficient increases as the depth decreases.
      • Friction coefficient (CF) – 2DDI bottom friction coefficient used in ADCIRC unless spatially varying bottom friction is specified using nodal attributes. If Manning’s n is the spatially variable friction coefficient, then CF will be used as the floor on the equivalent quadratic friction coefficient. If some other type of spatially varying bottom friction is specified in the NWP section, then CF is ignored entirely.
      • Break depth (HBREAK) – The break depth (units of length) utilized for "NOLIBF = 2" in the hybrid bottom friction relationship.
      • Approach factor (FTHETA) – Determines (for "NOLIBF = 2") how rapidly the hybrid bottom friction relationship approaches its deep water and shallow water limits when the water depth is greater than or less than HBREAK.
      • Increase factor (FGAMMA) – Determines (for "NOLIBF = 2") how the friction factor increases as the water depth decreases.
    • "Quadratic friction nodal attributes – Fric" – The quadratic friction coefficient at the sea floor. Clicking Select opens the Dataset dialog. The Dataset dialog has three buttons:
      • Create – Brings up the Dataset Toolbox dialog to allow creation of a new dataset.
      • Select – Brings up the Select Dataset dialog to allow selection of an existing dataset.
      • Unselect – Clears the selection displayed in the Name field in the Dataset dialog.

    • Coriolis option (NCOR) – The type of Coriolis forcing used does not impact run time for ADCIRC at all. A drop-down with the following two options:
      • "Constant" – Used if wanting to run ADCIRC in rectilinear coordinates. The model does not support reprojection from rectilinear to geographic to determine individual latitudes for each node.
        • Latitude (CORI) – Only available when "Constant" is selected. Constant Coriolis coefficient. This value is always read in, but is only used in the computations when "NCOR = 0".
      • "Variable" – Used when the coordinate system is geographic. In this case, ADCIRC will load a Coriolis coefficient for each node based on the latitude of the node.
    • Calculate SLAM0 and SFEA0 on export – If turned on, ADCIRC will automatically calculate SLAM0 and SFEA0 when exporting. If turned off, SLAM0 and SFEA0 must be manually set.
    • Longitude (deg) (SLAM0) – Longitude on which the CPP coordinate projection is centered (in degrees) if "ICS = 2". Must be set if Calculate SLAM0 and SFEA0 on export is turned off.
    • Latitude (deg) (SFEA0) – Latitude on which the CPP coordinate projection is centered (in degrees) if "ICS = 2". Must be set if Calculate SLAM0 and SFEA0 on export is turned off.
  • Flow boundaries section
    • Minimum angle for tangential flow (ANGINN) – Flow boundary nodes which are set up to have a normal flow essential boundary condition and have an inner angle less than ANGINN (specified in degrees) will have the tangential velocity zeroed.
  • Logging section
    • Auto-correct (non-fatal error override) (NFOVER) – If turned on, inconsistent input parameters will (when possible) be automatically corrected to a default or consistent value and execution continued. If turned off, inconsistent input parameters will cause ADCIRC to terminate.
    • Logging level drop-down (NABOUT)
      • "Debug" – Logs all ADCIRC log messages. This may consume a lot of disk space and slow ADCIRC down, perhaps dramatically, and is generally only useful for ADCIRC developers. Note that some third-party software may interfere with ADCIRC doing this.
      • "Echo" – Logs all ADCIRC echo, info, warning, and error log messages.
      • "Info" – Logs all ADCIRC info, warning, and error log messages.
      • "Warning" – Logs all ADCIRC warning and error log messages.
      • "Error" – Logs all ADCIRC error log messages.
    • Log message output (negative values output to file) (NSCREEN) – Controls log message output to the screen (i.e., to standard output). Timestep logging will be written every "abs(NSCREEN)" timesteps. Output to the screen consists mainly of timestep logging.
      • A value less than "0" logs messages that would normally be written to the screen to a file called "adcirc.log" instead.
      • A value of "0" tells ADCIRC to not log messages to the screen.
      • A value greater than "0" logs all messages to the screen. Also known as "standard out".

Wind Tab

ADCIRC Model Control dialog showing the Wind tab

ADCIRC can model and compute wind velocities and stresses. The ADCIRC model is able to use wind data from a variety of different file types.

The SMS interface is not able to read and create all of the available wind data file types. There are three types that SMS is able to read and create. Even though SMS does not read and create these other file types, it does tell ADCIRC that there is data there, where it is, and how to access it for a simulation to run correctly.

One of the parameters found in the fort.22 file (Single File Meteorological Forcing Input File) will tell which of the wind data file types SMS can read and create. The first parameter specified in the fort.22 file is called the Node Wind Stress (NWS) value. This value represents what type of wind data is in the file. It can range from 0 to 100+.

SMS can read and create fort.22 files that are of the NWS value of 1, 2, or 5. All other values of the NWS value are only shown and directed to the ADCIRC model by SMS so that a simulation will run correctly.

Tidal and Harmonic Constituents

Tidal constituents are variations in tides that are created by different frequencies of astronomical forcing. They arise due to the gravitational influences of the Moon and Sun on the Earth, the tilt of the rotational axis of the Earth, the elliptical shape of the Moon's orbit around the Earth, the shape of the Earth's orbit around the Sun, and other such factors.

Many constituents have been defined and are classified based on their cycle lengths. Most of the tidal constituents used in the ADCIRC interface of SMS are either diurnal (one cycle per day) or semidiurnal (two cycles per day) in nature. Harmonic constituents are those variations that have periods of less than half a day. For a table of commonly used constituents see Principal Tidal Constituents.[1]

SMS uses the following databases to provide the tidal constituent data to an ADCIRC simulation:

  • LeProvost – The LeProvost database is a set of *.legi files which provide amplitude and phase information. The LeProvost database can be downloaded at: sms.aquaveo.com/leprovost.zip.
    An image of the LeProvost tidal database domain coverage can be found here – LeProvost Domain.png[2]
  • ADCIRC – The ADCIRC database includes a grid file and a harmonics file that uses an *.exe extractor to put information into SMS. The ADCIRC database can be downloaded at: sms.aquaveo.com/adcirctides.zip. More information about the ADCIRC database can be obtained at the ADCIRC web page: ADCIRC Tides Databases. The ADCIRC database is only valid for projections in North America.

The path to each database on a computer must be specified in the Preferences dialog by going to Edit | Preferences then selecting the File Locations tab. The two tidal constituent databases (LeProvost and ADCIRC) are only accessible if the SMS project has a global (not local) display projection.
