--- Welcome to the official ADCIRCWiki site! The site is currently under construction, with limited information. ---

For general information, see the ADCIRC site, ADCIRC FAQ, or the ADCIRC Wikipedia page. For model documentation not yet available on the wiki, see the ADCIRC site. New content is being continuously added to the ADCIRCWiki, and material from the main ADCIRC site will be gradually transitioned over to the wiki.

Fort.24 file format

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The basic file structure is shown below. Each line of input data is represented by a line containing the input variable name(s) in bold face type. Blank lines are only to enhance readability. Loops indicate multiple lines of input.

for k=1,NTIF

Alpha line
Constituent frequency
Constituent name (e.g., M2)
for j=1,NP
end j loop
end k loop


The first four lines (Alpha line, Constituent frequency, 1, Constituent name) for each constituent must be present in the file but they are skipped over during the ADCIRC read.

The format of this file is identical to the “tea” harmonic format with no velocity information included. Entries are grouped by constituents and must be in the same order as the tidal potential terms listed in the fort.15. Phases must be in degrees. Amplitudes must be in units compatible with the units of gravity. These values are modified by the nodal factor and equilibrium argument provided for the tidal potential terms.
