This article is for GENESIS Model. The GENESIS Model has been replaced by the GenCade Model in current editions of SMS.

The GENESIS Model Control dialog is used to set general simulation options. This document highlights the more commonly used options. Refer to the GENESIS manual [1] for a more detailed description of how these parameters affect the model results.

Model Setup Tab

The following parameters are specified in the model setup tab:

  • Simulation Title
  • Simulation start and end time
  • Simulation time step
  • Recording time step

Beach Setup Tab

The following parameters are specified in the beach setup tab:

  • Sand and Beach Data
    • Effective Grain Size
    • Average Berm Height
    • Closure Depth
  • Longshore Sand Transport Calibration Coefficients
    • K1
    • K2

Seaward BC Tab

The following parameters are specified in the seaward boundary condition tab:

  • Input Wave Adjustments
    • Height Amplification Factor
    • Angle Amplification Factor
    • Angle Offset
  • Wave Components to Apply (Primary or Primary & Secondary)
  • Number of Cells in Offshore contour Smoothing Window

Lateral BC Tab

The following parameters are specified in the lateral boundary condition tab for the left and right lateral boundary condition:

  • Type
