Interact with intermediate variable during the run
Hello all, I was wondering whether it is possible to interact with model (e.g. get and set input variables or get output variables) WHILE the model is running, through HECRAS Controller. I checked the API functions and do not see find such a function.
Alternatively, can I use hotstart file and set model simulation duration for a very short period (say 1 min) and keep rolling with hotstart file until the end of simulation? However, I am not sure whether the hotstart file is designed for such application. In other words, if I break my duration 10 hours into 5 sections or 50 sections using hotstart file, will the final results be exactly the same? I guess it depends on whether the RAS model uses previous step results for calculation for next time step. Could anyone kindly comment on this?
