Coastal Hazards Research Collaboratory

CaFunwave is a port of the Funwave-TVD code developed by Dr. Fengyan Shi and his colleagues at the University of Delaware to the Cactus framework. By porting Funwave-TVD to the Cactus framework, we open the door to the possibility of using new tools, such as Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR), different time stepping schemes, and the Chemora GPU acceleration framework. A secondary advantage of the Cactus port is the ability to cross-check the codes against each other to improve correctness and accuracy. CaFunwave is capable of simulating storm surges, tsunamis, coastal nonlinear waves, wave-vegetation interaction, and breaking-generated near shore circulation.
