Parallel algorithms for solving the problem of coastal bottom relief dynamics




computational hydrodynamics, parallel computing, hydrology, mathematical model, sediment dynamics, bottom topography


A nonstationary 2D model of bottom sediment transport in the coastal zones of shallow water reservoirs is supplemented with the Navier–Stokes equations, the continuity equation, and the state equation of the water environment. A discrete model of sediment transport is obtained by approximating the corresponding linearized continuous model. Since the problems of predicting sediment transport need to be solved in real or accelerated time scales, parallel algorithms for hydrodynamic problems on systems with mass parallelism should be developed on grids with 106–109 nodes. The paper contains the results obtained by an efficient software implemented to perform hydrodynamic computational experiments that allow the numerical modeling of bottom deformation in the coastal zones of reservoir. The results of numerical experiments are discussed.
