A dredging simulation includes all the data to run a specific dredging alternative. Multiple simulations can exist at the same time within SMS to allow for the evaluation of different alternatives.
A simulation contains one or more dredging coverages.
Creating a Simulation
- New Simulation – Right click on a blank area of the project explorer and select "New | Dredging Simulation."
- Copy Existing Simulation – Right click on the simulation and select "Duplicate."
Adding items to a Simulation
A user can add coverages into a dredging simulation by dragging them into the simulation tree item in the project explorer. This will create a link to the coverage within the simulation.
Generating Particle Sources for a Simulation
To generate PTM sources, right-click on the simulation and choose "Generate PTM Sources." This will run the appropriate dredge source models and/or use specified loss percentages to generate a new PTM coverage with created sources.
