Thank you for visiting Dr. Alfred Kalyanapu's research website.
The simulation below shows the Dam Break that occured in December 2005 in Missouri. It is created using Flood2D-GPU (Kalyanapu et al., 2011), a two-dimensional flood model based on full St. Venant equations and solved using an upwind finite difference numerical scheme. The cool thing about Flood2D-GPU is, it is modeled using Graphics Processing Units or more commonly known as "Graphics Cards", (thanks to video game industry).
For more information about how to model floods (rainfall driven or otherwise), feel free to contact me.
