Restart Files

Youngling Posts: 3 Join Date: 1/7/16 Recent Posts
Hi there,

I run a Delft3D FM model and have outputted a restart file every 12 hours throughout the model simulation. I used a batch (.bat) file to run the model rather than through Delta Shell so I could continue working in Delta Shell as I can't seem to open up another instance. However, when I use the batch file the restart states (zip folders with metadata.xml) are not created, only the restart files themselves are created?

When I try to run a new model using the restart file (right click on 'Restart: Empty' in Initial Conditions in the model tree) I am unable to import the file as it says:

"Invalid restart file name your file should be formatted as <name>".

I have tried renaming the file, but it still won't import?

I have attached the restart file and batch file and would be grateful if someone could shed some light why it won't import?

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Hello Paul,

Could you also attach your network and mdu file, so I can look at the full scope of the model you are struggling with?
Is that correct that you are using version 1.0.3 of our cli package? Could you please check the version of the Delft3D Flexible Mesh (dflowfm-cli.exe --version).

Kind regards,
