Computer Modeling & Development
GSTL staff develops software for modeling flow, sediment transport, and bed evolution in a wide variety of situations. Modeling techniques range from relatively simple 1-D or 2-D vertically averaged steady flow models to direct numerical simulation models based on the Navier-Stokes equations. Some GSTL models are freely distributed within the Multi-dimensional Surface Water Modeling System (MD_SWMS). This interface can be downloaded here. GSTL has a state-of the-art PC-based network on site as well as access to government supercomputing facilities off site.
