avaframe/AvaFrame: Version 1.8


The new computational module release.

We've added two new (experimental) computational modules, com4FlowPy and com6RockAvalanche. Com4FlowPy integrates the development already done in the FlowPy project, and aims to be the target for flowpy development from now on. com6RockAvalanche is a highly experimental extension of com1DFA, aiming to find a parameterset/adjustments needed to simulate rock avalanches. It also allows the AvaFrame QGis Connector to set the release-thickness, which is done via a release-thickness raster file. This also necessitated a change in remeshing: now, the release thickness files are meshed analogous to the topography file (if necessary).

One important change in regards to the operational application of com1dfa: now the release volume of secondary release areas is considered when choosing the correct friction settings for samosATAuto friction model. Important: it does not matter whether the secondary release areas are actually triggered or not, their volume is included in the decision.

Breaking change

There's one breaking change in this release: If you used the override function from within one of the ini configuration files, this changes now. It is necessary to include the module collection as well, ie. instead of [com1dfa_override], you have to use [com1dfa_com1dfa_override].
