SMS provides pre- and post- processing for several numeric models. These models are developed and maintained by government or commercial entities rather than the developers of SMS. A comparison chart of the CIRP Numerical Model Tools and Capabilities (BOUSS-2D, CMS-Flow, CMS-Wave, GenCade, and PTM) can be found in the 2012 CIRP Brochure.

Hydraulic Models

  • RiverFlow2D – Commercially developed finite element model to route floods. Provides high resolution flood hydraulics.
  • HYDRO AS-2D – Developed commercially in Germany.
  • TUFLOW FV – Finite volume model developed by the makers of TUFLOW (WBM).
  • HEC-RAS – Developed at the Hydrologic Engineering Center for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
  • SRH-2D – Developed at the United States Bureau of Reclamation.
  • TABS – Suite of models for solving hydrodynamics and transport problems maintained by the USACE including RMA2 and RMA4
  • TUFLOW – Finite difference model featuring combined 1D/2D models, very stable wetting drying, and advanced simulation management for Coastal, Riverine or Urban applications.

Wave Models

Harbor Design

  • BOUSS-2D – Wave climate, circulation from waves, and sea state using the Boussinesque equations
  • CGWAVE – Phase resolving wave reflection and refraction analysis

Wave Generation and Transformation

Other Models

  • Generic – Rather than a specific model interface, the "Generic" model interface in the mesh module is a collection of interface objects that can be configured to generate specific types of data. The developers at Aquaveo work with some engine developers to utilize this tool. These engines are included in the list above. Other model developers are encouraged to contact Aquaveo for assistance in using these tools. The tools of the generic model interface can be utilized without coordination with Aquaveo. There are partial interfaces with the following:
  • PTM – Lagrangian Particle Tracking Model which tracks sediment particles based upon input hydrodynamics and wave effects.
