Initial Conditions Generates the initial conditions
State of the variables at the beginning of the simulation.

dry: Zero values

h+z uniform: All the cells with the same water level

Q uniform: Steady state corresponding to the discharge.

h uniform: All the cells with the same depth.

Dambreak Discontinuity at a given location
Initial condition

Boundary Conditions Configuration of the inlet and outlet
The Upstream boundary condition determines the inlet condition. The Downstream boundary condition provides the outlet condition.
Upstream condition
Determines de inlet condition.
Number of points
Time (s)
Q(t) (m3/s)
Downstream condition
Determines de outlet condition.
Gates Configuration of the regulation elements
Defines regulation elements such as lateral gates and cross gates with their location, width and discharge coefficient. They can be regulated using PID control.
Gates configuration
Defines regulation elements
Simulation parameters Configuration of the simulation scheme
The hydrodynamic variables evolution is calculated using the Finite Volume method with an explicit time integration.
