Abstract : The Coastal Modeling System (CMS) is a software package aimed at organizing the Coastal Engineering Research Center's larger numerical models and their supporting software into a user-friendly system that is available to all Corps elements having a need to apply the supported modeling technology. Since some of the models share similar input requirements, output capability, and procedural implementation, efforts are made to standardize these portions of the models as much as possible. FORTRAN 77 programming language is used exclusively in the system software to ensure portability of the models and supporting programs to other computer systems. Graphics programs also make use of DISSPLAU- software. Models selected for inclusion in CMS are well advanced in their development and have been rigorously tested over a wide range of conditions. The models in CMS can be considered tested, reliable, and mature. The numerical models documented here include: SPH, WIFM, CLHYD, RCPWAVE, WIFM Coastal Modeling System(CMS), SHALWV, cms, SPH, RCPWAVE, CLHYD, and SHALWV. Numerical model SPH is a parametric model for representing wind and atmospheric pressure fields generated by hurricanes. Numerical model WIFM solves the vertically integrated Navier-Stokes equations in stretched Cartesian coordinates. The model simulates shallow-water, longwave hydrodynamics such as tidal circulation, storm surges, and tsunami propagation. Numerical model RCPWAVE is a short-wave model used to predict linear, plane wave propagation over an open coast region of arbitrary bathymetry. Numerical model CLHYD simulates shallow-water, long-wave hydrodynamics such as tidal circulation and storm surge propagation. CLHYD, Coastal Modeling System(CMS), CMS, RCPWAVE, SHALWV, SPH, WIFM
