An Education-Oriented Code for Parallel Tsunami Simulation

SWE is an education-oriented code that implements simple Finite Volumes models that solve the shallow water equations - in a problem setting as it would be used for tsunami simulation. SWE has a modular design that allows parallelisation using different programming paradigms, such as MPI, OpenMP, or CUDA (further tests were done with Intel TBB/ArBB and OpenCL).


  • An article on the design and intent of SWE was accepted for the 11th International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing - ISPDC 2012 - it will be published by IEEE in the respective conference proceeding (late 2012).

You can download a preprint of the paper (as PDF).

Availability of the Code

SWE is made available under the GPL license. The latest version can be downloaded via git. We are currently doing a lot of changes (to be used during the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School 2012, and plan to publish a complete version in August/September 2012).
