HEC-RAS model hangs at the "Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces" step

HEC-RAS model hangs at the "Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces" step

(OP)
I don't see any interpolated sections in the model. Tried it with the most current version and also with an older copy of 4.10. Same symptoms.

Any ideas?

The attachment is the stock model provided to me by the municipality, with no changes on my end.

RE: HEC-RAS model hangs at the "Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces" step

Beej - I DL'd and ran the model "steady state". Am I missing something?
Here is the simulation data.

Thanks.

On my machine, the calculation stops at this step:

Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces

It just sits there for minutes and I have to cancel the simulation. If it runs fine for you, something must be screwy on my end. What version of HEC-RAS are you running? I get the same message on 4.10 and on a brand new, completely fresh install of 5.0.3.

steady.exe crashes on my end

RE: HEC-RAS model hangs at the "Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces" step

Are both of you 32bit or 64bit? I noticed that my run said "using 64bit computation engines". Just a thought and not sure if that would have a hill o beans to do with it.

Thanks cvg. Good to know I'm not the only one.

I'm on Win 10 64 bit.

I might scrape both installs off my machine and reinstall 5.0.3 tomorrow to see if that works.

RE: HEC-RAS model hangs at the "Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces" step

I just ran a ~50 mile model of the Colorado River a few weeks ago, no problem. it seems it might be this data file is the problem

Someone, not sure who, posted this:

Quote:

It seems LFC 1 river has some issues. the model will run if you delete it. take a closer look at this river/reach.

..then deleted their comment.

Well, this works, so if whoever it is wants to own up to it, they can earn a pink star.

RE: HEC-RAS model hangs at the "Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces" step

Beej67, I am running into the same isssue. I am working on a small model, and cannot move further. Some of the XS were computed, but the rest of them are not. Very weird. What exactly was the solution/approach you took?

RE: HEC-RAS model hangs at the "Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces" step

(OP)
The mystery poster identified the reach with the bad data in it, so I nuked that reach and everything works fine. My suggestion would be to save your project down to a temporary file, delete segments until it runs, and make a note of which segments you deleted to make it run. Then do what you can to clean up the problem areas.

RE: HEC-RAS model hangs at the "Computing XS Interpolation Surfaces" step

Thank you beej67, I have followed up on your advice, and the newly created model works just fine. Appreciate your response.
