Sediment Transport Modelling using US Customary/Imperial/English Units?

Recommended Posts

Question: I have a hydrodynamic model which is using english units (ft). I specify this within the model control fil using the command:


Units == English


I would now like to upgrade the model by switching on sediment transport. Are the units supposed to be SI within the sediment control file? I am not sure if I should be consistent with the units or if I should use metric units for the sediment module?




Answer: Unfortunately, TUFLOW FV currently doesn’t support Imperial/English units for the morphology module. This means your entire model (both the hydrodynamic and morphology components) will need to use SI units to assess sediment transport.


We are planning to update the software in future releases to support morphology Imperial/English units and will keep you updated on these developments.
