Significance of the File
contains different details with respect to the description of a vertical grid structure
File-Contents (in Catchwords)
- minimum layer depth: if the actual total water depth at a computational node falls below this limit the node will be treated as a dry node.
- (optional) list of depth for layer boundaries: any number of layer boundaries may be prescribed; if no boundary is specified it is assumed that there exists no vertical grid structure; a numerical simulation will then be carried through in depth averaged mode.
- (optional) type of layer structure, where the following different forms are supported:
- an arbitrary number of parallel layers with a well defined depth for each layer (z-layers);
- any number of bottom and/or surface following layers (sigma-layers).
Notice: dictionary-file layer_z_untrim_dico.dat, normally present in directory $PROGHOME/dic/, will be automatically read by the application program in addition to the user-specified input file.
Programs using this Type of File
- interactive generation (editor)
please refer to $PROGHOME/examples/untrim/:
- ./vertical.2D.dat for depth-averaged 2D-simulations;
- ./vertical.3D.dat for 3D-simulations.
Further examples in $PROGHOME/examples/io_layer/.
