Short Description of Functionality

Program DATACONVERT is used to convert computational results and data:

  • mode 1: conversion of computational results from the integrated modelling system Delft3D into BAW-specific data formats, with
    • conversion of a Delft3D computational grid into UnTRIM grid format,
    • conversion of two-dimensional (depth averaged) Delft3D computational results into BDF data format (2D),
    • conversion and depth averaging of three-dimensional Delft3D computational results into BDF data format (2D), and
    • conversion of three-dimensional Delft3D computational results (sigma-coordinates) into BDF data format (3D, z-layers).

Dynamic model bathymetry (morphodynamics) is supported for 2D as well as 3D computational results. If Delft3D model results have been produced for a domain decomposition run, the converted results are written to different domain-specific data files and are not yet combined into one single file.

A conversion into the subsequent physical output quantities is currently possible:

  1. water level,
  2. current velocity,
  3. salinity,
  4. temperature,
  5. bathymetry (static),
  6. transient bathymetric depth,
  7. vertical erosion,
  8. suspended load (icode=7),
  9. new: (mass) bed load transport rate (icode=621), converted from a volume transport rate,
  10. new: (mass) suspended load transport rate (icode=622), converted from a volume transport rate and
  11. new: bottom shear stress

Input-Files

  1. steering data
    file of type dataconvert.dat. The extended description for this file contains comprehensive informations with respect to steering data, input as well as output data files.
  2. computational grid
  3. (optional) global metadata
    • Setting metadata via shell scripts, envrionment variables can of a simulation can be set in a run script. Variables describing the project can be stored in a project script (German: Auftragsskript) under $PROGHOME/bin/dmqs. So, DMQS compliant metadata is generated.
    • nc_meta.dat, in case file nc_meta.dat is present in the current working directory, this file will be read by the application. Otherwise the respective file from $PROGHOME/cfg will be read.
  4. computational results or data
  5. (optional) vertical structure
    • mode 1
    • mode 2 - no vertical structure required
    • mode 3 - no vertical structure required
    • mode 4 - no vertical structure required
    • mode 6 - no vertical structure required
    • mode 7 - no vertical structure required
    • mode 8 - no vertical structure required

Output-Files

  1. converted computational grid
  2. converted computational results
  3. printer file
    • dataconvert.sdr.
  4. (optional) trace file
    • dataconvert.trc.

Methodology

The original computational grid is in case converted using methods from software package H_GRID or L_GRID. Interpolation of computational results is performed using methods from the H_IP package. Read and Write of computational data is carried through essentially using methods from software package IO_DATASET and in mode 6 also using IO_DELFT.
