This chapter guides through the setup of a two-dimensional (2d) numerical simulation with the freely available software BASEMENT v3.1.1 developed at the ETH Zurich (Switzerland). Visit their website to download the program and read the detailed documentation. This tutorial features:
Setting up a 2d hydrodynamic, steady model
Running a steady hydrodynamic 2d numerical simulation
Post-processing of simulation results: Visualize, understand and analyze model outputs.
Completing this tutorial requires:
The installation of QGIS.
The SMS 2dm file resulting from the Pre-processing with QGIS tutorial.
The installation of BASEMENT v3.1.1 or newer.
All software applications featured in this tutorial are compatible with Linux and Windows platforms. Note that BASEMENT is not available for macOS.
