I want to start a simulation in Flow and as you can see in the attached figures, I think I'm following the correct steps , but I can't even choose the .mdf file.</p> <p>After I created all the files and the .mdf I select the working directory (folder with all files including .mdf) choosing the option of the Flow menu, but When I click on "Start" to run the simulation a small window to choose the .mdf file appears with "default.inp" so I click on "browse" to search the file in a different folder (because even if I previously defined the working directory, that folder doesn't open so I need to change the folder) when I find the .mdf I select it but a message appears saying "Switching to other directory not allowed here. Please, stay in current directory and try again".</p> <p> </p> <p>I don't know what I'm doing wrong. When I click browse the directory is C:/ but my working directory folder is on a external hard drive F:/. I know that is not the problem because I moved my folder to C:/ but the error continued.</p> <p> </p> <p>Thank you for your help.</p>Esther Espinoza2018-05-10T18:18:08ZHow to consider sea level rise escenarios with Delft3D Flow?Esther Espinozahttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806746&messageId=15008762018-03-27T07:54:19Z2018-03-27T07:54:19ZHi, I want to use Delft3D to simulate different escenarios of sea level rise in an estuary. <br /><br />In a previous work I simulated water levels in a time series format using for the open boundary tide gauge measurements for two different periods of time of the year. Now I would like to use the same input data to simulate different sea level rise escenarios (Since I do not have tidal constituents). Is there a way to incorporate a sea level rise rate in the model? <br /><br />Thank you in advance for your help.Esther Espinoza2018-03-27T07:54:19ZHow to consider sea level rise escenarios with Delft3D Flow?Esther Espinozahttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806746&messageId=15008602018-03-27T07:35:09Z2018-03-27T07:35:09ZHi, I want to use Delft3D to simulate different escenarios of sea level rise in an estuary. <br /><br />In a previous work I simulated water levels in a time series format using for the open boundary tide gauge measurements for two different periods of time of the year.

However, the results for both months, april and june, using the astronomic components are exactly the same so the highs and lows do not coincide with the results simulated with the time series data. I did two simulations with the astronomic components, one for each month. So, how do I make the model consider time for each month? <br /><br />Then, I did just one simulation from april to june which obviously took more time. The results for april and june were different but the phase lag was not gone, even though it was reduced a little bit I can't use those results to obtain the meteorological tide. How do I solve this? Is it necessary to simulate the whole period in one simulation? What about if I want to simulate the same month for two different years? I will take a lot of computational time for that.<br /><br />The astronomic components for both months were almost the same, there was no considerable difference.<br /><br />Thanks!Esther Espinoza2018-01-21T07:06:33ZRE: PROBLEM: water level results with double peaks. Results aren't smoothEsther Espinozahttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806746&messageId=14341012018-01-21T06:27:25Z2018-01-21T06:27:25ZThanks for your answer. The double peaks were everywhere through the domain. The problem was solved by interpolating the hourly data input for the open boundary to a 10 min interval. The peaks were gone, the curve was smooth and the statistical parameters were a little bit better. I'm not sure why the hourly data was a problem, but it was solved. I think it was on the high and lows because there were not enough points due to the hourly data.Esther Espinoza2018-01-21T06:27:25ZRE: PROBLEM: water level results with double peaks.

I have just one open boundary at the mouth of the estuary, I have used manning values between 0.012 and 0.030 and the eddy viscosity between 10-100. Also, I've done simulations with a reflection parameter alpha of 0 and 100 but it haven't solved the problem.<br /><br />I'm just simulating water level and I'm just considering what I've mentioned before, the open boundary input data is in a time series format from tide gauge measurements of an institute, I plot that data and it is not a perfect smooth sinusoidal curve but it does not show double peaks (just in two peaks I think but it was small).<br /><br />I read in another post a recommendation to smooth the bathymetry, which I did once and the results were not better. I will attach the graphics and I hope you can help me with this. <br /><br />Thanks!<br /><br /> Note: The graphics don't show the complete month just a few days so the peaks can be seen but the whole month shows double peaks.<br /><br /><br /><br /><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/wttkjfq0a2bvvuy/grid-bat-obspoints.JPG?dl=0">grid bathymetry and obs points</a><br /><br /><br /><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/9p72zw0x4a7yrqw/double%20peaks.JPG?dl=0">double peaks</a><br /><br /><br /><a href="https://www.dropbox.com/s/7qqt79mvhl44vtq/open%20boundary%20data.JPG?dl=0">open boundary data plot</a><br /><br /><img src="https://www.dropbox.com/s/yfe8on7lpi5rlgk/obs_points%20results%20plot.JPG?dl=0" />Esther Espinoza2018-01-06T19:06:45ZPROBLEM: water level results with double peaks.

The reference level of the bathymetry data I got was with respect to the MLWS (Mean Low Water Spring) because the data is taken for navigation purposes. The reference level of the amplitudes (time series) of tides, was with respect to the MWL (Mean Water Level). I modelled an example to see what happens, I got no error. But I'm still wondering if the error about modelling water level (MWL) with bathymetry respect to the MLWS generates significant changes in the results and how Delft3d works with reference levels. Do you know how this difference will influence the results or how can I correct this before or after the simulation?

I just one day decided to reduce the number of splines I was using and it worked fine, the error was gone. I guess maybe it is too much for the computer to process I really don't know. I have to tell you, that I finished the grid without problem but when I got to the interpolation (dep file) process I appeared again. So, it took me a long time to interpolate it, doing it for really small areas for the whole grid (like 6 cells per interpolation) and I finished it. Maybe you can try doing it the same way reducing splines and it could work for you too.Esther Espinoza2017-11-04T16:55:52ZDifferent reference levels in Delft3d Flow (for water level simulation)Esther Espinozahttps://oss.deltares.nl/c/message_boards/find_message?p_l_id=1806746&messageId=13698662017-11-04T16:49:52Z2017-11-04T16:49:52ZHi I'm modelling water level for an estuary.

I'm new with delft3d but I'm using the flow module to model water level, my study area is an estuary. I made the grid and save the dep file but I didn't do it at the cell centers. I mean, when I made the interpolation I never choose grid cell centers, I just finished the whole interpolation and save the dep. <br /><br />So now on the flow module (Domain-Bathymetry) I should choose the option "Values specified at Grid cell corners" right? Then, I'm not sure which of the three options :Max, Mean or Min to choose for "Cell centres values computed using" should I use. Which of these options would be the best for my type of study area?<br /><br />Or maybe I can change the dep saving it at the grid cell centres without doing the whole interpolation again on Quickin?<br /><br />Sorry if this is too obvious to ask.
