Internal scenarios, shortcomings and coding bugs

Sometimes the user input to SWASH is such that the model produces unreliable or unstable results. This may be the case, for instance, if the bathymetry is not well resolved or the boundary conditions are wrong (not well-posed).In addition, SWASH may invoke some internal scenarios instead of terminating the computations. The reasons for this model policy is that

Examples are:

Some other problems which the SWASH user may encounter are due to more fundamental shortcomings, e.g., turbulence modelling, and unintentional coding bugs.


Because of the issues described above, the results may look realistic, but they may (locally) not be accurate. Any change in these scenarios or shortcomings, in particular newly discovered coding bugs and their fixes, are published on the SWASH website and implemented in new releases of SWASH.
