Simulating Real-World Floods on GPUs

Originally published at: Simulating Real-World Floods on GPUs | NVIDIA Developer Blog

Flood risk assessment is important in minimizing damages and economic losses caused by flood events. A team of researchers from Vienna University of Technology and visual computing firm VRVis, are using GPUs to run fast simulations of large-scale scenarios, including river flooding, storm-water events and underground flows. The researcher’s primary interest is in decision-making systems, where they evaluate…
