BOUSS-2D makes use of input files during the model run and has options for outputting files.

Input Files

BOUSS-2D makes use of the following files during a model run.

  • Required files
  • Optional files
    • Damping File (*_damping.grd)
    • Current File (*_current.grd)
    • Porosity File (*_porosity.grd) (Still under development – be advised to use with caution)
    • Variable Roughness File (*_friction.grd) (Still under development – be advised to use with caution)

Output Files

BOUSS-2D can output both spatial and locational files. Output file options are specified in the BOUSS-2D Model Control dialog.

  • Spatial files – Values at every active computation point, These can be saved in 5 separate native BOUSS-2D formatted files (three ASCII and two binary) or in a single binary XMDF file (*.h5 – This is an HDF5 file). The native format files include:
    • Transient datasets
      • Water Surface File (*.eta) (This also includes breaking index at each cell.)
      • Current File (*.uv)
    • Mean values
      • Significant Wave Height File (*_hs.grd)
      • Mean Current File (*_mean_uv.grd)
      • Mean Water Level File (*_mwl.grd)
  • Locational files – These files contain information for specifaclly selected cells (probes)
    • Water Level at Probes File (*_ts_eta.ts1)
    • U Component of current at Probes File (*_ts_u.ts1)
    • V Component of current at Probes File (*_ts_v.ts1)
    • Pressure at Probes File (*_ts_p.ts1)
