General Description

To create a music Setup File (MSF) or Excel Script File (CSV), a strict file format must be adhered to. Contact eWater for sample MSF/CSV files to be included in the "MSF" folder in the music installation directory. Note that MSF file is used throughout the following file description. However, the file format description also applies to the Excel Setup Script (CSV) format.

The easiest way to develop a "dummy" MSF file is to create a base project in music and export it to MSF format by selecting Create Model » Import/Export and selecting Export-MSF from the drop down menu. This will automatically create an MSF file in a format that can be modified and imported into music.  Nevertheless, if you wish to use an external program to create an MSF file, the following file format requirement will need to be adhered to.

The MSF file is an unformatted text-based file that lists data in comma separated columns. Refer to the table below for its format details. Please take special note of keyword spelling and spaces (incorrect spelling could result in the file not working in music). A snippet of an example msf file is shown below in the Example MSF File.

 

Order

Description

Mandatory/Optional

1

This is the MSF header providing general information about the music project.

The keyword 'DESCRIPTION' is mandatory

Content in the description is optional

2

The music setup file version number - must be the first line of data.

Mandatory

3

File name of MUSIC meteorological template.

Optional

4

Basic setup information including the following (must be in this order):

  • Rainfall file
  • PETFile
  • StartDate (in the format dd/mm/yyyy)
  • EndDate (in the format dd/mm/yyyy)
  • Timestep (time-step in seconds)

Optional

5

Constituent details

Optional

6

MUSIC-link properties (refer to MUSIC-link for more information)

Mandatory

7

Source node properties (refer to Source nodes for more information)

Optional

8

USTM node properties (refer to USTM node for more information)

Optional

9

Generic treatment node properties (refer to Generic treatment node for more information)

Optional

10

Other node properties (refer to Other node for more information)

Optional

11

Drainage link properties (refer to Drainage link for more information)

Optional

 

The following rules apply to the MSF file format:

  • The MSF version number must be located in the MSF file. All other information is optional; 
  • Node type "blocks" (e.g., source, USTM treatment, generic treatment etc) can be input in any order. However, drainage links (if required) must be entered at the end of the MSF file. 
  • Entering string or floating point values when integer values are expected will generate errors when importing. 
  • Node and drainage link parameter values must always be located in the second column of the MSF file. 
  • Comments can be included throughout the MSF.

Further detailed information on MUSIC-link settings, and each of the individual node and drainage link types that can be included in the *.msf file are described below, along with the required file format and parameter values for each.

Source Nodes

Source Nodes can optionally be included in the MSF file. Source Nodes that can be included in an MSF file include:

  • Urban
  • Agricultural
  • Forest; and,
  • User-defined.

The required MSF file format for each Source Node is outlined below, along with default input parameter values and required input parameter types (e.g., string, integer or floating point). Note that each node type must have a unique "ID" number. Also note that only the first two columns in the following tables need to be included in the MSF file. The third and fourth columns are provided for information purposes only.

The following tables can be copied and pasted into spreadsheet software to assist with MSF/CSV file development (the first "Parameter Description, Default Parameter Value, Type and Additional Information" row should be excluded from the MSF file).

USTM Treatment Nodes

USTM Treatment Nodes can optionally be included in the MSF file. Source Nodes that can be included in an MSF file include:

  • Wetland;
  • Pond;
  • Sedimentation Basin
  • Infiltration System;
  • Detention Basin;
  • Bioretention;
  • Media Filtration;
  • Buffer;
  • Swale; and,
  • Rainwater Tank.

The required MSF file format for each USTM Treatment Node type is outlined below, along with default input parameter values. Although the basic file format for USTM Treatment Nodes is identical for all different node types, not all USTM Treatment Nodes require all input parameters to be provided (refer parameters with no values assigned in the second column).

The following tables can be copied and pasted into suitable spreadsheet software to assist with MSF file development (the "Parameter Description, Default Parameter Value, Type and Additional Information" row should be excluded from the MSF file).

Generic Treatment Nodes

Generic Treatment Nodes can optionally be included in the MSF file. Generic Treatment Nodes that can be included in an MSF file include:

  • Gross Pollutant Traps (GPTs); and, 
  • Generic Treatment Nodes.

The required MSF file format for each Generic Treatment Node is outlined below along with default input parameter values. Note that each node type must have a unique "ID" number. Also note that only the first two columns in the following tables need to be included in the MSF file. The third and fourth columns are provided for information purposes only.

Flow and pollutant treatment performance for generic treatment nodes is defined via transfer functions. By default, each transfer function contains two points, however, the MSF file format incorporates support for up to ten transfer function points (if less than 10 points are included, the subsequent lines are left blank, as shown below).

The following tables can be copied and pasted into spreadsheet software to assist with MSF file development (the "Parameter Description, Default Parameter Value, Type and Additional Information" row should be excluded from the MSF file).

Other Nodes

"Other" Nodes can optionally be included in the MSF file. If no "other" nodes are to be included in the MSF file, the "Number of Other Nodes" line can be set to  "0" or alternatively the line and associated properties can be omitted from the MSF file.

Other Nodes that can be included in an MSF file include:

  • Junction;
  • Receiveing;
  • Pre-development node; and
  • Post-development node.

The required MSF file format for each "Other" Node is outlined below, along with default input parameter values and required input parameter types (e.g., string, integer or floating point). Note that only the first two columns in the following tables need to be included in the MSF file. The third and fourth columns are provided for information purposes only. The "Parameter Description, Default Parameter Value, Type and Additional Information" row should also be excluded from the MSF file.

Drainage Links can also be optionally be included in the MSF file. Unlike nodes, which can appear in any order within the MSF file, Drainage Links must appear at end of the MSF file. This is because drainage links can only extend between two nodes that have already been loaded into the MUSIC project.

The required MSF file format for drainage links is outlined below along with default input parameter values . Note that only the first two columns in the following tables need to be included in the MSF file. The third and fourth columns are provided for information purposes only. The "Parameter Description, Default Parameter Value, Type and Additional Information" row should also be excluded from the MSF file.
