How to get temperature from FLOW in WAQ?

Hi,

I'm trying to run WAQ coupled with FLOW.
However, I can't figure out how to setup WAQ to get temperature data from FLOW.

I tried to model using water temperature process and without this process.
With water temperature processes I think it is possible to WAQ model temperature or user have to give all the temperature related data.
In the second case, it seems WAQ is using a constant temperature.
I made off-line coupling.

Can anyone help me?

Hi Julio,

You have to include the coupling file from flow *.tem as a segment function. At the end of your Delwaq inp file you will find these lines: The .vdf should already be there...add another one below for temperature....Then you should see 'Temperature_Flow' in your output map files.

; 0 - number of functions
SEG_FUNCTIONS
'VertDisper' ; name of segment function
ALL
BINARY_FILE '/p/folder/name/filename.vdf' ; binary file
SEG_FUNCTIONS
'Temperature_Flow' ; name of segment function
ALL
BINARY_FILE '/p/folder/name/filename.tem' ; binary file

good luck,

Katherine

Thanks a lot, Katherine!

I just had to add some additional steps regarding configuring processes in PCLT and it worked fine!!

The steps were:
- I haven't used water temperature at general tab.
- I made the temperature constant and editable
