WAQ: Coupling with FLOW in LINUX

Hi All,

I can't locate any example/manual note where the coupling procedure (on or offline) with FLOW is explained.
Can you give me a hand here?

Best,

João.

Hi João,

The tutorial (section 7.1) in the D-Water Quality user manual gives an example of the coupling procedure.
You might find the input file description usefull as well, section 4 covers hydrodynamic data.

If you want to have FLOW creating D-Water Quality input directly, go to section B.18 in the FLOW manual. For the classic off-line coupling just make sure your FLOW runs output com-files: section 5.15 in the FLOW manual.

Good luck!
Christophe

Hi Christophe,

Thanks for the suggestion and the updated manual, I had a really old version of that.
I probably didn't phrase the question right. I know how to make a hyd file and run the offline coupling from the GUI.

My question is how to run it from the the command line in LINUX. The examples only cover calling the delwaq1 and delwaq2 executables...
Is there a away to do this or do I always need the GUI?

Thanks in advance,

João.

Hi João,

The coupling program is called coup203. It isn't open source yet but you got it together with the Deldt3D GUI. If you search your installation directories you should find it.

To use coup203, just call it without any arguments. It will look for it's input file, couplnef.inp, in the same directory.
The format of couplnef.inp is rather complex, so it is better to let the GUI write it for you. Besides couplnef.inf, coup203 also expects a default file, delw420.dat, in your run directory. If not there, you can copy delw420.dat from the default folder in your installation directory.

By the way, if you can afford to rerun your FLOW model(s), you could also configure FLOW to produce the necessary files directly (no need for coup203 anymore).

Regards,
Christophe
