CGWAVE Computation

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what everyones expericence was with running CGWAVE through the SMS parent program in terms of domain size vs computer capabilities. I will be running the model on a rather large domain (approx. 2500sq miles) and need to buy a new computer to handle it but I don't know what levels of computer components I need to purchase. So if anyone would care to help me out by providing the following information, it would be greatly appreciated.

Domain Size | Approx. Computation time | CPU Processor | RAM | ROM | Graphics Hardware |

Anything else that you feel may be relevent would also be a big help. Thanks again. B)

Hawaii,

The following is a link of general system requirements for SMS 10.0:

I also ran the CGWAVE tutorial. It took about 20 seconds to run on my machine. Here is the other information you requested:

Domain Size: 4.86 mi^2

Approximate computation time: 16 seconds

CPU Processor: Intel Core 2 6400 @ 2.13 GHz

RAM: 2.00 GB

Graphics Card: Radeon X1300

So, if you had the same type of machine, it might take around 2.5 hours for you to run your model which covers 2500 mi^2.

Hope that helps.
