SMS 11.0 Release Notes

The following bugs have been fixed in this version.

SMS 11.0.12 – Built November 8, 2012

  1. Error in converting a stamped coverage to a scatter set was resolved
  2. When loading a generic mesh in a *.2dm file, with a template that does not correspond to the current model definition, SMS could crash. This problem was resolved to allow for preservation of the grid.
  3. In some situations, when generating a drogue plot or particle trace animation, some of the particles were not getting the new time step data. This has been resolved.
  4. Fixed an error related to interpolation to nodes that are “inactive”. All nodes now get interpolated data regardless of the state of the connected elements.
  5. Calibration plots using the active data set did not update when changing to a completely different scatter set. This has been resolved.
  6. Fixed a drawing order that caused annotation items to appear on top of the film loop clock. The clock now appears on top.
  7. Additional comments were added to the TUFLOW Flow Constriction dialog to make the units and coefficients more understandable.
  8. Bug related to reading in a large RMA2 solution was resolved.
  9. When SMS writes GIS data (or a coverage) as a *.mif/*.mid pair, an extra “bound” record was being written. This has been corrected.
  10. Calibration targets are now not drawn when the observation point falls in an inactive cell/element.
  11. When framing the display, SMS now includes active grid frames.
  12. Fixed erase behind labels to include the film loop clock.
  13. When creating datasets in the dataset toolbox, if all arguments to an operation come from a single folder, the result will now be placed in the same folder.
  14. Fixed a situation where the screen froze trying to display contour labels.

SMS 11.0.11 – Built October 5, 2012

  1. Several internal memory leaks were corrected.
  2. How SMS saves the input wind file for the “Holland Symmetrical” hurricane option for wind in ADCIRC were corrected.
  3. An error related to material sets in TUFLOW was corrected. SMS would lose track of which material set was assigned to a simulation when a project was saved and then read back in.
  4. In some cases it appeared that SMS was deleting data sets from the Project Explorer. In reality, there were just some empty folders that were left in a simulation.
  5. Clarification was made for the “Override Z values” option for TUFLOW in both the dialog and the documention.
  6. In the dataset toolbox, when SMS creates a new data set, the activity was being computed from the resultant nodal activity. This caused single cell/element islands that were inactive to become active. This was changed to use the element activity of the input data sets to compute the resulting element activity.
  7. The ordering of external files in the geometry component file (tgc) is now controlled by the order of the tree items to allow the user to control this explicity.
  8. A crash when loading ADCIRC grid files was resolved. Some files had “Unexpected End of File” messages, and then crashed. They now read in correctly as they did with previous versions.
  9. Error in the TUFLOW interface to “Force cell z to at or below the node z” was resolved. The option is now available without activating the “Set Channel Invert” elevation.
  10. Inconsistent display of rasters corrected.
  11. Error in the SMS steering of CMS-Wave and CMS-Flow was corrected to save the correct eta files.
  12. A file pointer to a shape file was not released when SMS opens the file. This has been corrected.
  13. A issue with user defined palettes was corrected. The first palette was always active when reloading a project. Now SMS looks for a named palette that was active when the project was saved. If that palette exists, it is made current.
  14. SMS has been known to save an illegal material with an ID of zero when saving TUFLOW projects. This should not happen any more.
  15. SMS allows two TUFLOW boundary condition coverages. They cannot be identical or TUFLOW will crash.
  16. Fixed an issue of editing BC curves associated with arcs in a TUFOW coverage. Changing the curve used to change it for other copies. The distinction of multiple curves is now maintained.
  17. Fixed a bug with how WAM grids read in native format are loaded into SMS.
  18. Fixed output of GCL strings for RMA4 to not include the midside nodes.

SMS 11.0.10 – Built September 10, 2012

  1. Additional documentation was added to the help manual on the AdH model control options.
  2. A memory overflow error when triangulating is detected so that SMS does not crash when triangulating very large scatter sets. Several possible solutions to get the data loaded are suggested. A future enhancement will reduce memory requirements for triangulation. This also applies when merging two large scatter sets that cause SMS to try to retriangulate.
  3. Fixed problem when loading STWAVE output files and converting the data sets to scalars. The conversion was creating scalar data sets with “0.0” values.
  4. Fixed an issue with graphics when dragging an arc in the Map Module. During the drag, a phantom arc would appear offset from the arc that was being dragged.
  5. Fixed a problem when forcing breaklines into a TIN that resulted in flat or degenerate triangles. No degenerate triangles should be created now.
  6. A problem with RMA4 giving bad values at midside nodes was isolated and reported to the TABS team at ERDC. No update is expected.
  7. A problem was resolved in the “Holland Symmetrical” hurricane option (NWS = 8).
  8. Resolved an issue with calibration plots when multiple solutions exist.
  9. Fixed spacing in the model wrapper when running AdH to match what is output in a command prompt. This makes the output more readable.
  10. Fixed a crash when creating a telescoping grid for CMS-Flow.
  11. Resolved an issue when reading a TUFLOW solution with overlapping elements at the confluence of two 1D tributaries. SMS deletes the longer (skinnier) triangles that were overlapping, but still reads the data sets for visualization. When these cross sections are properly constructed, there should not be overlapping triangles.
  12. Made change so that when user tries to open the HURDAT database, SMS switches to geographic coordinates to support the data if possible.
  13. Fixed crash related to SMS trying to switch into PBL model even though the interface is not licensed.
  14. Resolved a situation which caused SMS to freeze when dragging a coverage to another location in the project explorer (in Map Module or in a TUFLOW simulation).
  15. Clarified the management of linear –vs- quadratic elements in the mesh module. If both types are permissible, SMS now asks the user to specify the desired type. The default is set to quadratic if quadratic elements exist of when working with TABS or FESWMS. Otherwise, the default is linear.
  16. Fixed a crash when loading multiple map files into SMS.
  17. Added check to verify validity of a coastline file before reading to prevent crash.
  18. Fixed a situation where SMS assigns the wrong material type to polygons created during a conversion from a mesh.
  19. Added support for “TD Card” (the global time step) when converting SMS 10.1 generic model templates to SMS 11.0 format.
  20. Added a warning to let users of the generic model interface be informed that just reading a 10.1 template will not allow use of an 11.0 generic model version.
  21. Fixed conversion of air density for FESWMS when switching from customary units to SI.
  22. Implemented a change to maintain the material set assignments for TUFLOW simulations for an SMS project when saving and reopening the project.
  23. Corrected a linkage problem with scatter data sets being lost when deleting other data sets.
  24. Clarified the documentation and prompts when using the “override Z values” options in the TUFLOW interface. The model supports several options that were causing confusion among users.
  25. Added a right click command in the 1D-2D connections coverage properties to allow users to select the boundary condition coverage to use with 1D-2D connections in the TUFLOW interface.
  26. Fixed a problem with CMS-Flow/CMS-Wave steering that was preventing the “eta” or surge file from being passed to the wave model after a flow simulation.
  27. Fixed a problem with the names of rasters being reset to default value after saving.

SMS 11.0.9 – Built August 6, 2012

  1. Fixed an issue in the CMS-Flow model wrapper to ensure the run time would update.
  2. Fixed a problem with the names of rasters being reset to default value after saving and reloading an SMS project.
  3. Fixed problem with visualization mode to support quadratic elements. This allows switching between visualization mode and TABS without problems.
  4. Fixed error in computing flux across an observation arc. Documented that insufficient resolution, either by saving only TUFLOW corners, or by unrepresented AdH refinement can cause errors in computed flux.
  5. Fixed bug with bad air mass density when converting from customary units to SI and back.
  6. Fixed bug with node labels that stayed visible when nodes were turned off.
  7. Fixed display of node numbers so that they do not overlap nodal elevations when both are turned on.
