Modelling sediment transport

Postby tironi@gmail.com » Wed Oct 31, 2012 22:21

Hi, I'm trying to model sediment transport in a tidal wetland. But I keep getting this error.


TOTALTHICKNESS keyword is now obsolete when using FIXSEDIMENT.
TOTALTHICKNESS keyword will be ignored.
Sediment thickness is now given by a file. Check your options!
GetDomainsFromFile - Geometry - WRN180


Do you know why?

Here are my files

Please help me! I have already checked my options like 1000 times.

And about the sedimentGrid that you must define in the GUI. It supposed to describe the sediment thickness all along the grid?

Thanks in advance,

Best of lucks,

Antonio
