Why Multiple Domains with SMS?
SMS provides a custom interface to the TUFLOW Multiple Domains Module offering a simple way to set model parameters and a graphical user interface to run the model and visualize the results. Gather background data from a variety of sources from GIS to CAD and access online data from numerous databases of maps, images, and elevation data. SMS allows you to interact with models in true 3D taking advantage of optimized OpenGL graphics and to create photo-realistic renderings and animations for PowerPoint, print, and web presentations.
TUFLOW Multiple Domains Module Description:
Multiple Domains allows any number of 2D domains of different cell size and orientation to be built into a model. The 2D domains can be linked by 1D domains, or via the 2D/2D linking feature. Each domain can be of different cell size, orientation and extent.
For example, a 1D domain of a river system may have several 2D domains embedded to represent several townships where a more detailed 2D analysis is required. Another scenario is to use a coarser 2D grid linking to a finer resolution 2D domain over the area of interest. 1D elements can link between the different 2D domains, for example, an underlying pipe network can be linked to any number of different 2D domains.
