System for Transport and River Modeling (SToRM)
SToRM is a computer model developed for rapidly varying, fast flowing surface waters. It solves the shallow water equations using a control volume formulation on triangular unstructured grids and uses discontinuity-preserving solution methods for the spatial discretization (Riemann solvers) and for marching in time (SSPRK schemes). It has been applied in problems in fluvial hydraulics, flooding, and flow through vegetation. It currently works using Tecplot-compatible flat files and the iRIC 2.0 graphical user interface.
