SMS ALL.sup

Recommended Posts

Now that TUFLOW writes the Time of Maximum water level to a separate .dat file is it possible to get TUFLOW to add the _Times.dat to the list of files included in the ALL.sup?

Notwithstanding this would be a good new feature, note that the SUP file is a text file, so you can edit it or create a new one, and include the _Times.dat file in the list of files to be loaded.

Hi Claire

The reason the _Times.dat file is not included is because it has different time values to the other .dat files and some users prefer not to have these showing in the Times panel on the left of SMS as it causes confusion when looking at the results at different times. Once you've loaded a .sup file, you can than drag and drop the _Times.dat file on to SMS. Personally, I prefer to open another instance of SMS and drag and drop the .2dm file then the _Times.dat file and view the times values separately to the other .dat files so that the Times panel is not confusing.

However, I would now recommend moving to the .xmdf files as the above problem doesn't occur and the data is nicely managed using the tree structure embedded in the xmdf file, so there is no need to interpret the somewhat "obscure" time values to view peak times and max/min data.

Cheers

Bill
