  4. Q: Can you please give me an example of how to use operating controls on Sluice Gate? A: Sure! We also recommend the 2013-12 release notes(http://www.tuflow.com/Download/TUFLOW/Releases/2013-12/Doc/TUFLOW%20Release%20Notes.2013-12.pdf). Page 23 We've put together a small example on Sluice gate controls below. This example builds on the data provided Tutorial module2. (1) Make the layer After loading 1d_nwk_M02_culverts_001 into your GIS package of choice, save copy (I'm calling mine 1d_nwk_M02_culverts_operational_002). On the northern most set of culverts make the following changes (See figure 1) ID: FC01.2_SG Change the ID for clarity Type: SGO Type "SG" for sluice gate with an added "O" to make it operational Inlet_Type Sluice Test The control ID for the structure, used to link the structure to the logic block Save and export your file. (2) Write the logic Create a new file in the runs directory called Sluice_gate.toc Add the following lines: Define Sluice Gate Control == SluiceTest ! Default Settings Gate Height Fully Open == 1.0 !Optional, sets the height of the open gate Period Opening/Closing ==1 !Time taken to fully open or close (hours) Gate Opening == Close !start with gate closed !Define User variables h_US == H2D 293286 6178179.75 ! 2D Water Level Upstream of the Gate (at specified X and Y) !Define Logic if h_US > 41.0 !If the US water level is greater than 41.0 then open the gate Gate Opening == Open else ! Else, close the gate Gate Opening == Close end if End Define A few notes of interest: Multiple structures can refer to this logic block, just reference 'SluiceTest' in the 1d_nwk file like the previous Note that there was a change from the 2013-12 documentation, as detailed here: http://www.tuflow.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=1441 (3) Update .tcf and run Save a new version of the .tcf file for M02 and make to following changes in the 1D domain block: Update the reference to the 1d_nwk file: Read GIS Network == ..\model\mi\1d_nwk_M02_culverts_Operational_002.mif Add a link to your newly created .toc file: Read Operating Controls File == sluice_gate.toc Run your new .tcf (4) Review results To review the results of your operational structure, use the 1d_O.csv in the results\M02\1D\csv folder (see figure 2) Here you will see that the gate status is closed until the trigger level of 41.0m AHD is reached at the X, Y location set in the .toc file. The gate then opens for 1 hour as specified buy the period in the logic block. The gate remains open while the level is greater than 41.0m AHD at the specified location, until it closes again.
  5. this is a test - please disgregard
