The STWAVE graphical interface includes tools to assit with creating, editing, and debugging a STWAVE model. The STWAVE interface exists in the Cartesian Grid module.

Model Control

The STWAVE Model Control dialog is used to setup the options that apply to the simulation as a whole. These options include time controls, run types, output options, global parameters, print options and other global settings.

Running the Model

The STWAVE files are written automatically with the SMS project file or can be saved separately using the File | Save STWAVE or File | Save As menu commands. See STWAVE Files for more information on the files used for the STWAVE run.

STWAVE can be launched from SMS using the STWAVE | Run STWAVE menu command. A check of some of the common problems called the Model Checker is done each time the model is launched, or by selecting the STWAVE | Model Check menu command.

Visualizing Results

The solution files for STWAVE are XMDF files. These files can be opened in the normal SMS interface. To view the observation or nesting spectral output simply open the files (outside of the Spectral Energy dialog), open the Spectral Energy dialog, and select the spectral grid. This will open the spectral grid for viewing in the Spectral Energy dialog. Make sure to set the original grid back before leaving the dialog to ensure the model does not change.
