I am a student studying at Korea.

I have simulated using delft3D-FLOW.

Recently, I am trying to simulate a storm surge using Delft3d FM.

I have a simple question.

When I enter the Spider Web grid file on FM, can I use the .spw file using the dashboard?

Does delft3d-FLOW and FM use the same spider web grid file (spw)?

and How do I set the atmospheric pressure in FM?

Average air pressure on bounds/ average initial air pressure are 0 N/m^2 or 101325.00000 N/m^2 ??

Please answer a simple question.

I always thank you, guys.

Thank you.

In the Deflt3d wave module you can select bottom friction, so there's the choice of JONSWAP, COLLINS and MADSEN.

In the Delft3d flow module there is a bottom roughness formula where you can choose CHEZY, MANNING, COLEBROOK.

So if I am trying to implement space varying roughness of a coral reef. Where do I implement it???

Currently I have made the varying bottom roughness file through quickin by adjusting the mannings number and selecting mannings as the bottom roughness formula in the flow module. Is this correct? Or do i have to set up a varying bottom friction file in the wave module?? if so how do you do that?

My model is meant to show the wave attenuation over a reef to an island. My flow grid only surrounds the island which is nested in a larger grid which spans the entire reef.

Thank you for your time
