This page provides an example application of Hurricane Gustav , using files that were available already on the Internet for other applications. The entire set of example input files is: Gustav-EC95d. The individual files are also linked and described below. These files are extremely coarse, both in the mesh resolution and the wind field, but they are a good starting point for new users of the coupled models. For more information about our high-resolution hindcast of Gustav, please see our article in Monthly Weather Review. Unstructured Mesh: The unstructured mesh is fort.

Access[ edit ] The model is free, with source code made available by request via the website  , allowing users to run the model on any system with a Fortran compiler. A pre-compiled Windows version of the model can also be purchased alongside the SMS software .
Capabilities[ edit ] The model formulation  is based on the shallow water equations , solving the continuity equation represented in the form of the Generalized Wave Continuity Equation  and the momentum equations with advective , Coriolis , eddy viscosity , and surface stress terms included.
ADCIRC utilizes the finite element method in either three-dimensional or two-dimensional depth-integrated form on a triangular unstructured grid with Cartesian or spherical coordinates.
It can run in either barotropic or baroclinic modes, allowing inclusion of changes in water density and properties such as salinity and temperature. The model has been optimized to be highly parallelized , in order to facilitate rapid computation of large, complex problems.
In these applications, the model is able to take advantage of tight coupling with wave models to increase calculation accuracy. Retrieved on 27 April Retrieved 27 April Report 1. Report 2.

SMS provides a custom interface to the ADCIRC model offering a simple way to set model parameters and a graphical user interface to run the model and visualize the results. Gather background data from a variety of sources from GIS to CAD and access online data from numerous databases of maps, images, and elevation data. SMS allows you to interact with models in true 3D taking advantage of optimized OpenGL graphics and to create photo-realistic renderings and animations for PowerPoint, print, and web presentations. ADCIRC models can be applied to computational domains encompassing the deep ocean, continental shelves, coastal seas, and small-scale estuarine systems. Typical ADCIRC applications include modeling tides and wind driven circulation, analysis of hurricane storm surge and flooding, dredging feasibility and material disposal studies, larval transport studies, near shore marine operations. ADCIRC is a highly developed computer program for solving the equations of motion for a moving fluid on a rotating earth.
Shagami These can be 3D or 2D depending on the input. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. What are its main features? Retrieved 27 April They proved consistency and convergence rates by examining problems with a range of dynamic acirc so that their analytical tests mimic real world applications. Is there a way to find the distance or length, or width of a nodestring?
