    Hi There,

    I am trying to run a FIT RORB model. I have digitised .catg file within the graphic editor. At a particular node (J-6) I am looking to get both the calculated discharge and actual discharge based on the gauge flow recorded. This is referenced in the storm file. However, when I change this node (to Code 7.1 from Code 7) I get a fatal error

    Data error: 1.00 read instead of end check -99
    2 ordinates & end check read
    1 hydrograph(s) expected in data

    When this node is just down as a Code 7 node, RORB works fine and flows are recorded, however when it is changed to 7.1 it records an error. Do you know why this may be the case?

    Hi Luke,

    In your storm file you need to remove the pluvio reference numbers, when you are only inputting 1 pluviograph in the storm file RORB does not read in the pluviograph assignment. The reason why RORB works when you only have a code 7 is because the last piece of data RORB reads is the subarea rainfall totals, it doesn’t read any more lines of text. When you have the code 7.1, it is expecting the hydrograph data after the subarea rainfall data so an error pops up because RORB is reading in the pluviograph reference instead of the hydrograph data it is expecting.

    Just another thing to note, using the FIT run in RORB is normally no longer used as DESIGN runs give you more control over the loss values being applied.

    Kind regards,

    Benson
