Hello All,

currently an Architecture student trying to simulation river flow and sediment flow in the st-lawrence river, canada.

I have an stl of the bathemetry which I'm using as the geometry.

- set up the global settings to simulate for 2 hours (7200s)
- physics include: shallow water model, gravity, viscosity, particles
- geometry is an imported stl - i have it set up exactly in the same way as the shallow water model example from flow3d
- mesh was created with the shallow water model checked off. cells at 100m
- initial water is hydrostatic and set at appropriate water level.

I keep getting errors on my mesh not being set up appropriately. see attachments for screen shots

thanks for your help!
