Mesh Quality Analysis

Mesh Quality Analysis
Input files:

Mesh (.ELE and .Node-files, or .SHP-file) , DEM as .BIL-file, Velocity distribution .VEC-file after first calculations

Output files:

Saved in the folder of the input mesh.

[Inputfile]+.qual.csv   …   Mesh statistics

[Inputfile]+.qual.shp   …   Mesh with per cell quality information

Further explanation can be found in Chapter 6 of [...]

Create Streamlines with Velocity Field files

Create Streamlines with Velocity Field files

Give a .VEC-file with velocity field information and a cross section as .SHP-file of the river which is almost orthogonally flow through.

The resulting streamlines are placed in the same folder as the input .VEC-file.

Velocity Vectors and Streamlines


Approximated discharge between 2 streamlines at the given cross section.

Attention: As TINs and [...]

Create Velocity Vector Arrows

Create Velocity Vector Arrows

Creates a .SHP-file with arrows in direction of flow, based on .VEC-file information. The arrow length depends on the magnitude. E.g. 1m/s generates an 1 meter long arrow.  For better visibility the length of the vectors can be scaled by the magnitude length multiplicator.

Option 1:  Only 1 arrow in the middle of [...]
