The Surface-water Modeling System (SMS)
|SMS Wiki Sections|
The Surface-water Modeling System (SMS) is a graphical user interface and analysis tool that allows engineers and scientists to visualize, manipulate, analyze and understand numerical data and associated measurements. Many of the tools in SMS are generic. They are designed to facilitate the establishment and operation of numerical models of rivers, coasts, inlets, bays, estuaries, and lakes.
SMS 11.2 beta was released in January of 2014.
SMS 11.1 was released in March of 2013. Monthly updates have followed since. To see what issues have been addressed in these updates, please refer to the Release notes.
Introduction to SMS
The Highlights provides a summary of SMS capabilities.
The SMS Tutorials are step by step guides for building models and using SMS features. They are an excellent place to begin learning how to use SMS.
SMS supports a number of Numerical Models with a variety of uses including hydraulics, wave modeling, and particle tracking.
See Layout of the Graphical Interface for more information on the organization of the toolbars, menus, and windows in SMS.
A list of Publications and Reports produced using SMS.
Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) and Aquaveo have partnered to present FHWA Webinars about using SMS and WMS.
