The Morphological time step should satisfy Courant criteria based on celerity of bed perturbations, which often gives an opportunity for 'morfac' of several hundreds. If you use the acceleration factor of 100, you need to run an hour of flow for every 100 hours of morphology. <br /><br />MohamedMohamed Yossef2011-03-31T13:02:32ZRE: qh-relation failsTobias Gierrahttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806686&messageId=329442011-03-31T08:53:04Z2011-03-31T08:53:04ZHi Mohamed,<br /><br />thanks for your testing. I'm currently testing a long time simulation with your configuration since we also tested the relaxation factor and very small time steps. In this cases we got the failure not until 30 hours of simulation time.<br /><br />I chose the 'big' time step for better reproducing of the failure. So why does the qh-relation fail after a steady state was reached? In fact we want to run a long term sediment simulation and so we would prefer smaller time steps.<br /><br />Tobias.Tobias Gierra2011-03-31T08:53:04ZRE: qh-relation failsMohamed Yossefhttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806686&messageId=326472011-03-30T15:50:06Z2011-03-30T15:50:06ZDear Tobias<br /><br />I have checked your model and it seems that the time step you used is too large (you can check it from: quick plot --> set file dependent options --> Check Time Step). I managed to successfully run the simulation with a smaller time step (Dt = 0.0015) and a "relaxation factor for Q-H forcing" set to 0.5.<br /><br />Mohamed YossefMohamed Yossef2011-03-30T15:50:06ZRE: qh-relation failsTobias Gierrahttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806686&messageId=326072011-03-30T13:51:45Z2011-03-30T13:51:45ZHello Bert,<br /><br />attached you will find an example which reaches a staedy state first and fails afterwards. The time simulations failing varies depending on time step, cell size and boundary conditions. Hopefully, there is only an option missing in MDF.<br /><br />Kind regards,<br />Tobias.Tobias Gierra2011-03-30T13:51:45ZRE: qh-relation failsBert Jagershttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806686&messageId=323442011-03-29T14:01:34Z2011-03-29T14:01:34ZHi Tobias,<br /><br />Generally if boundary conditions fail, it's because initial oscillations cannot escape. The alpha factor can help to remove such fluctuations at water level boundaries. However, I understand from your post that the simulation reaches a steady state, but afterwards starts to oscillate (again). I haven't seen this before, but you indicate that it's consistent across a wide range of time steps and grid resolutions ... therefore, it would indeed help if you can provide input files of one of these simulations.<br /><br />BertBert Jagers2011-03-29T14:01:34Zqh-relation failsTobias Gierrahttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806686&messageId=323232011-03-29T10:22:17Z2011-03-29T10:22:17ZHello.<br /><br />We're trying to simulate a simple steady state discharge scenario in a rectangular channel. At the upstream boundary we defined a total discharge (constant or increasing) and at the downstream boundary is a qh-relation according to the mannings-formular. Every time we try to run the simulation with different cell sizes (1 to 0.05 m) or time steps (1 to 0.001 s) over a period of more than a day the solver reaches the steady state but after a while the qh-relation fails and we get waves and increasing water levels.<br />Does anyone know the reasons for this behavior?<br />We got the same results with the latest sources or a 5 years old binary distribution of Delft3D. If it would be helpful, I will attach the simulations files.<br /><br />Sincerely yours,<br />Tobias.Tobias Gierra2011-03-29T10:22:17Z
