MODEL PERFORMANCE

Model Performance is affected by:

Surface geometry complexity.

The number of Nodes/Elements: Reduce the number of nodes by auditing them.

The number of raises: Increase the raise height.

The number of Deposition Vectors:

oDeposition Nodes: If possible, reduce the number of Deposition Nodes.

oDeposition Paths: If possible, reduce the number of Deposition Paths.

oDeposition Lines:

Increase the Deposition Vector Spacing.

You can often increase the node spacing without meaningfully affecting results.

The required node spacing depends on the beach slope, which affects the beach fall between spigot locations.

Steeper beaches require more closely spaced Deposition Vectors.
