SMS:Boundary XY Files

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Boundary XY files (*.bxy) are used to store the x,y location of the nodes on all the nodestrings in a mesh. If wanting to export only the boundary node locations, make sure nodestrings only exist on the boundary of the mesh. If nodestrings exist on the interior of the mesh, their locations will also be included in the boundary XY file.

Boundary ID files are not opened in SMS but are saved using the menu command File | Save As... in the Mesh module. To save a boundary XY File (*.bxy), the current mesh module model should be set to ADCIRC. Use the menu command Data | Switch Current Model... to change the current mesh module model.
