ANUGA - Present Applications and Future Potential, 16-17 September 2008 at Geoscience Australia

ANUGA is a Free and Open Source Software implementation of the Shallow Water Wave equations which has been developed by Geoscience Australia (GA) and the Australian National University (ANU) since 2004. The software can be downloaded online at http://sourceforge.net/projects/anuga. ANUGA has primarily been used for tsunami inundation modelling (see e.g. http://www.ga.gov.au/ausgeonews/ausgeonews200609/modelling.jsp), due to the worldwide interest in tsunamis triggered by the events of Boxing Day 2004. Presently, there is an increasing interest in developing ANUGA into a tool for flood modelling, dam break studies and modelling of coastal processes (see e.g. http://www.rienco.com.au/index.php?v=Research_and_Development).

Workshop objectives

  • Bringing the user community closer together
  • Sharing different case studies where ANUGA is being used to model hydrodynamic systems
  • Discussing and making prioritised recommendations for the future development of ANUGA.
