intro story D-Flow FM

 

D-Flow Flexible Mesh

D-Flow Flexible Mesh (D-Flow FM) is the new software engine for hydrodynamical simulations on unstructured grids in 1D-2D-3D. Together with the familiar curvilinear meshes from Delft3D 4, the unstructured grid can consist of triangles, pentagons (etc.) and 1D channel networks, all in one single mesh. It combines proven technology from the hydrodynamic engines of Delft3D 4 and SOBEK 2 and adds flexible administration, resulting in:

  • Easier 1D-2D-3D model coupling, intuitive setup of boundary conditions and meteorological forcings (amongst others).
  • More flexible 2D gridding in delta regions, river junctions, harbours, intertidal flats and more.
  • High performance by smart use of multicore architectures, and grid computing clusters.
An overview of the current developments can be found here.
 
The D-Flow FM - team would be delighted if you would participate in discussions on the generation of meshes, the specification of boundary conditions, the running of computations, and all kinds of other relevant topics. Feel free to share your smart questions and/or brilliant solutions!

Extracting data from different points in Quickplot (no path)

Extracting data from different points in Quickplot (no path)

Padawan Posts: 26 Join Date: 10/8/12 Recent Posts
Hello all,

I was wondering if I can extract the data from different points without using a path because I need to extract the Hs during the whole period studied and if I have to create a path there is no enough memory...

I could extract one by one, but they are eleven and 4 cases so it would take a lot of time! I could not find on the manual any information about it...could you give me a hand, please?

Thank you very much

Regards,
Javier

PS. please could you move it to post processing tools- Quickplot? Sorry for the mistake

Hi Javier,

I'm not sure whether I understand your question correctly, but this suggestions may help:

In QuickPlot you can create a macro file: click the "record" button, specify a file name, export one point of interest and click the "stop" button. The resulting qplog file is an ASCII file. You can open it in a text editor and add all your points of interest and have them exported by "playing" the changed qplog file in QuickPlot.

Regards,

Adri

Thanks Adri for your answer.

Yes what I want to do is extracting the data in 12 different points at the same time and what you suggested is a great idea but when I opened the qplog file I found this:

exporttype 'mat file (v6)'exportdata 'C:\XXXXXX\hsig wave height.mat'

But there was no information about the interest points... and I extracted in a (X,Y) point/path...

Where should I specify the points I want?

Thanks again
Javier

Hi Javier,

If you "record" In QuickPlot while clicking-around, the qplog file will look like this:
openfile 'wavm-obw.dat'
selectfield 'hsig wave height'
allm 0
editm 11
alln 0
editn 22
exportdata 'hsig wave height 11 22.mat'
editm 33
editn 44
exportdata 'hsig wave height 33 44.mat'

Regards,

Adri
