Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN describes the purpose and functionality of the steering module in the Surface-Water Modeling System SMS. The steering module was developed to automate repetitive user tasks and required data sharing between circulation and wave propagation numerical models. Procedures and processes for operating the steering module are summarized, and an example demonstrates hydrodynamic coupling within the steering module.
