Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN presents an example of how to use the numerical model CGWAVE within the Surface Water Modeling System SMS Version 8.0 environment. Updates of SMS are frequent and may result in different control options. This CHETN was completed as part of the Tedious Creek, MD, work unit of the Monitoring Completed Navigation Projects program.The SMS is a comprehensive graphical user interface GUI for model conceptualization, mesh generation, statistical interpretation, and visual examination of surface-water model simulation results. The version described herein is SMS Version 8.1. It is the main model delivery system with pre- and post-processor capabilities for all the CHL numerical models including ADCIRC, TABS RMA2, RMA4, SED2D, ADH, HiVEL, M2D, STWAVE, BOUSS2D, and CGWAVE. These integrated or interconnected models provide circulation andor wave climate from a range of coastal processes including waves and currents, sediment transport and morphology change, channel infilling and inlet morphology, and dredged material fate. SMS provides the tools and macros for editing and display for mesh development, coordinate conversion, model connectivity, animations, and comparisons.
