How to load 2D diagnostics

  • Dark
    Light

On completion of a 2D simulation (2D only, or 2D linked to river and/or urban), you can load the diagnostics files. Depending on the file type chosen, these will open directly in the Map view of the interface, or within a text editor such as Notepad. This functionality enables you to quickly and easily investigate diagnostics and troubleshoot issues.

Note
Selected diagnostic information can also be viewed when you load 2D results.

To load 2D diagnostics:

  1. In the Simulations section of the Project panel, select the simulation name.
  2. Right-click and navigate to Load Diagnostics to open a further menu.
  3. Select from the three options provided:
    1. Load cell status check grid(s) - loads check grids immediately into the Map view and the Layers panel. The cell status check grid is a particular type of check grid that details the status (boundary/active/inactive) of each cell in the domain. It has its own predefined colour ramp which will be applied automatically upon loading. In a multi-domain model, each domain will have its own cell status check grid.
    2. View 2D log file - opens the diagnostics in your native text editor, e.g. Notepad.
    3. Load all check grids - opens a window to select from all available check grids, such as ground elevation and initial water depth, for each domain. Check the ones of interest and then click OK to load into the Map view and the Layers panel.
