Welcome to the ANUGA Open Source Hydrodynamic / Hydraulic Modelling Project

The current development version of anuga now resides on github at  anuga_core

Reecommended Download and Installation of ANUGA

Download and Install ANUGA_PARALLEL

We are only supporting the parallel version of anuga on Linux. Checkout the standard install to setup parallel.


For windows the version on sourceforge seems to still work fine. Here is the link:

For Linux we recommend installation from source:


ANUGA is a Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) package capable of modelling the impact of hydrological disasters such as dam breaks, riverine flooding, storm-surge or tsunamis.

ANUGA is based on the Shallow Water Wave Equation discretised to unstructured triangular meshes using a finite-volumes numerical scheme. A major capability of ANUGA is that it can model the process of wetting and drying as water enters and leaves an area. This means that it is suitable for simulating water flow onto a beach or dry land and around structures such as buildings. ANUGA is also capable of modelling difficult flows involving shock waves and rapidly changing flow speed regimes (transitions from sub critical to super critical flows).

ANUGA is developed by the Australian National University (ANU) and Geoscience Australia (GA) - hence the name. See also  ANUGA flyer.
