Setting up your own command file

In this chapter some guidelines for setting up a command file is given. This file contains all the necessary commands and data required for defining a model and running the simulation. All the commands and keywords are listed in Appendix C. Not all the commands need to be specified. Most of them will be taken default. Generally, a command file consists of five parts which must be specified by the user:

  1. a computational grid,
  2. some input grids, most notably the bathymetry,
  3. initial and boundary conditions,
  4. some physical and numerical parameters, and
  5. output quantities, output locations and output formats.
