A bird's-eye view of SWASH

The open source code of SWASH has been developed based on the work of Stelling and Zijlema (2003), Stelling and Duinmeijer (2003), Zijlema and Stelling (2005, 2008) and Smit et al. (2013). The main elements of the SWASH code are:

Like SWAN, the software package of SWASH includes user-friendly pre- and post-processing and does not need any special libraries (e.g. PETSc, HYPRE). In addition, SWASH is highly flexible, accessible and easily extendible concerning several functionalities of the model. As such, SWASH can be used operationally and the software can be used freely under the GNU GPL license (http://swash.sourceforge.net).
