Abstract:

The HULL code is a group of public domain computer programs to solve hydrodynamic flow problems. The Hull system comprises a library of code from which Fortran programs are generated, a program called SAIL that is used to maintain this library, and a program called PLANK that is a preprocesser for HULL. The HULL system is capable of running on a variety of computers and is currently installed at a number of sites throughout the world. The HULL system produces code for hydrodynamic problems. Version 121 can solve two or three dimensional problems in either Eulerian mode, Lagrangian mode, or a combination of both Eulerian and Lagrangian modes. HULL also has the capability to produce a variety of plots of the data produced by the calculations. The HULL code is written in standard FORTRAN but must be altered to run on different computers due to such things as varying bit sizes of variables and the different file opening statements for different machines. kr
