Why ADH with SMS?
SMS provides a custom interface to the ADH model offering a simple way to set model parameters and a graphical user interface to run the model and visualize the results. Gather background data from a variety of sources from GIS to CAD and access online data from numerous databases of maps, images, and elevation data. SMS allows you to interact with models in true 3D taking advantage of optimized OpenGL graphics and to create photo-realistic renderings and animations for PowerPoint, print, and web presentations.
ADH is a state-of-the-art ADaptive Hydraulics Modeling system. ADH uses adaptive numerical meshes that can be employed to improve model accuracy without sacrificing efficiency. It also allows for the rapid convergence of flows to steady state solutions. ADH contains other essential features such as wetting and drying, completely coupled sediment transport, and wind effects. A series of modularized libraries make it possible for ADH to include vessel movement, friction descriptions, as well as a host of other crucial features.
