Delft Flow-WAQ coupling error

need help!!!
I am trying to couple flow and waq modules.

The flow model ran successfully and generated the com- file for the coupling. But, When I try to run the coupling program, I get the following error message. Can anyone suggest what might be wrong in my flow or coupling set up? Thanks

COUPLING PROGRAM
Delft3D-FLOW - Water Quality
Deltares, COUP203 Version 2.48.09.25853, Jan 18 2013, 09:42:45

PC/Windows/Linux version


ERROR: integer expected, but not found ??
are you using the correct input file ??
for input files of => v2.4 use header:
COUP_VERSION_24

Exit from Delft3D-Coupling

Hi,

From your message I could only suggest what the message already says: are you using the correct input file ??

Besides that I could strongly advise you to use the online couling program in your flow runs. Switch on Export WAQ input, and use the edit WAQ input button to go to the next screen, and make the correct settings.

Hi all,

Im having the same problem. 

I would like to couple the results from FLOW in the PART tracking module.

However the flow model does not create a 'COM' file and output of Delft3D flow I could not select the 'online coupling' bottom.

What could i do?

Hi Michelle,

If you couldn't see the 'Export WAQ input' option, or in older FLOW GUI versions, the 'online coupling' at the bottom of the output section, that could only be if you have a very old version of the FLOW GUI (>5 years). Email to delft3d.support@deltares.nl for a newer version of the (oss) GUI.

If you also don't see a com-file, things you could check are the start and stop timers and the interval. When the interval is zero, the com-file will not be produced. The same goes for the preferred 'Export WAQ input' option, that will only produce a hyd-file (that is directly usable by PART) when the timings are correct.
