3.1.2. Welcome to 3Di¶
After logging in to the 3Di portal, the screen Welcome to 3Di will show:
In this screen, there are two possibilities:
Start a new session using the New session tab.
Follow an ongoing session via the Follow session tab.
3.1.3. Start a new session¶
Select the New session tab and select the model you want to start.
A new session will be started.
During the start up of the model tips for use of the site will be shown.
It may take several minutes to load the model. Actual loading time is dependent on model size, calculation grid and table step size.
For each organization, the number of simultaneous sessions is limited according to the agreement (contract). If the limit is reached, the message “Your organization is already running X sessions” will show. The amount of server time used is subtracted from the time available within the agreement.
3.1.4. Following a session¶
Through the tab Follow session an active session of your organization can be followed. The number of followers of a session is not limited.
3.1.5. Main session¶
When starting or following a session, the model will show in the complete extent. On the top left you can see the name of the loaded model. At the top right you can see the user menu icon and a % indicating the load of the model on the server.
The left bar from top to bottom contains:
side view tool
add a discharge point (2D)
add a pumping point (2D)
edit the DEM of the model
For the visualization of the model elements, see the Layers menu.
3.1.8. Quitting the simulation¶
In the menu under the user icon, quitting the simulation ends the use of calculation time. If this option is not used the session remains active. One of the following scenario’s might apply:
time out after being inactive is set to 30 minute for a running simulation
time out after being inactive is set to 5 minute for a paused simulation
leaving the session via a tab will close the simulation after 30 minutes
When inactive for too long, the session will close ‘This simulations is no longer active. You may start a new simulation.’
Editing of structures or DEM can only be done after pausing a simulation.
In the current setup special attention to models with initial water levels in 2D and laterals.
Initial water level in 2D is taken into account, but only with the ‘max’ parameter.
Laterals in a model are at the moment not used in the live site.
The color scheme of the water depth can not be changed in the live site
The language of the site will change depending on the language settings of your browser. Currently mandarin, english and dutch are supported. Please keep in mind that model elements are never translated.
Manholes are turned off by default. Turning them on and zooming out might cause the live site to slow down.
Water depth is not shown in the channel nodes.
