Abstract:

The Users Manual for the Matlab-based MeshGUI Graphical User Interface GUI containing the software programs meshcreate.m and meshedit.m describes the software, including its functionality and usage. The meshcreate and meshedit tools provide a relatively automated and interactive means, respectively, for obtaining good quality finite element meshes that directly interface with the ADvanced CIRCulation Model ADCIRC through the fort.14 file. The resulting mesh, defined by a coastline boundary that inscribes connected linear triangles, discretizes a geographic region of interest for which the ADCIRC model is to be applied. The goals of the GUI-based meshcreate and meshedit tools are to provide some flexibility to the experienced user for designing or modifying a mesh while at the same time ensuring a quality mesh will result after only minimal input from the novice user.
