SMS:BOUSS Runup / Overtopping Input Files

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The following files are used by BOUSS-2D in a run-up simulation:

  • *.par
  • bathy.grd
  • porosity.grd (optional)
  • damping.grd (optional)
  • friction.grd (optional)

Each of these can be read/written by SMS. The prefix for each file will follow this format: "coveragename_arcId".

Parameter File

SMS will write a parameter file (*.par) for each set of wave parameters on each transect. This file contains model control information, 1-d grid data, and the wave maker parameters. Each parameter file represents a unique simulation.

Bathymetry File

This file (bathy.grd) defines the elevations along the 1-d grid (transect arc).

Porosity File

A porosity file (porosity.grd) will be written for each transect arc that is overlapped by a porosity arc. This file defines the porosity values along the 1-d grid. If no porosity arcs are defined, the model uses a default value of 1.0 along the entire grid.

Damping File

A damping file (damping.grd) will be written for each transect arc that is overlapped by a damping arc. This file defines the damping values along the 1-d grid. If no damping arcs are defined, the model uses a default value of 0.0 along the entire grid.

Friction File

A friction file (friction.grd) will be written for each transect arc that is overlapped by a roughness polygon. This file defines the roughness values along the 1-d grid. If no roughness polygons are defined, the model uses the Chezy coefficient defined in the model control along the entire grid.
