This is the main page for ANUGA meeting 30th August 2007
* Supercritical flow (e.g. over weirs) as well as sub critical flows handled seamlessly
* Bores handle well due to discontinuities allowed in solution
* Numerically stable
* ANUGA is not as fast as some other models (but willing to trade numerical stability for speed). Is comparable with some flood modelling packages.
* More diagnostics needed, e.g. time series, vector plots, extrema (dynamically store max stage/velocity: ticket:192)
* Easy way of extracting time series - GA to provide example to Tom of extracting depth/veloctiy at a time step
* Monitoring the water line (i.e. stage = elevation): ticket:199
* Information on how sww file has been built not documented well enough
* Wave attenuation over long distances and coarse grids identified by Will Power (ticket:195)
Emerging opportunities for future work
* Time varying bathymetry ticket:191
* Validation for wave setup on planar beach (UQ interested in looking at this)
* Culverts: ticket:145
* changing the mesh resolution - specify period of wave etc to work out maximum triangle size (adaptive mesh generation, ocean model from Imperial College) - inter-run adaptive mesh resolution - a better mesh tool - could we view the where the small triangles are? Interact with a GIS tool? By Xmas, Ted will have a nice GUI front end for flood modelling.
* dynamic roughness - Manning's function - is the coefficient a function of depth?
* fluid density - picking up debris (mud flow)
* frequency dispersion
* kinematic viscosity
* optimisation; often only a few triangles causing small time steps - can they be dealt with heuristically?
* subversion - third party contributions, isolate core of ANUGA.
* applying a hydrograph at an upstream point
* landslide over time rather than instantaneous (implement as forcing term)
* randomly generated bathymetry - does is cause instability?
* harbour seiching (use climate history as forcing function)
