SMS:PTM Wave File

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The PTM wave input files contain the time-varying phase-averaged wave information for the simulation in terms of significant wave height, Hs, peak period, Tp, and direction.

File Overview

The wave input files must contain information for each node in the mesh input file. Wave input files are usually time-varying. The wave input file can be in ASCII or XMDF format.

ASCII File Overview

ASCII format wave input files are used when using STWAVE or CMS-Wave (WABED) results.

Example ASCII Wave File

Examples of ASCII Wave files can be viewed in the CMS-Wave Wave Breaking File and CMS-Wave Wave Output File articles.

XMDF File Overview

The XMDF dataset file format can be used by other models such as ADCIRC or CMS-Wave.
