Full Equations Model Graphical Data Inspector (FEQ–GDI) user guide

November 7, 2019

The Full Equations Model Graphical Data Inspector (FEQ–GDI) is a menu-driven utility program that enables users to visualize and check the geometric and hydraulic properties of channel cross sections, selected control structures, and stream profiles in the input files for the Full Equations (FEQ) Model and the Full Equations Utilities (FEQUTL) Model. The FEQ Model is a computer program for the simulation of one-dimensional, unsteady flow in open channels and through control structures using the full, dynamic equations of motion. The input to FEQ Model includes the output from the FEQUTL Model, which computes tables relating the hydraulic properties of channel cross sections and control structures to depth, flow, and (or) other specified parameters. FEQ–GDI can be used to help users quickly detect anomalies in the data that may indicate errors in the input files.
