Report from S&T Project 1883: Development of a GPU accelerated salinity module for the SRH-2D platform

Reclamation's mission is designed around delivering usable agricultural water for the West. Therefore, being able to simulate salinity in a 2-D finite-volume model in a realistic timeframe would be of significant value to Reclamation. The goal of this project was to develop a salinity module to simulate salinity using SRH-2D, a two-dimensional (2D) flow hydraulic and mobile-bed sediment transport model for river systems that is frequently used by Reclamation. Additionally, this research sought to improve the efficiency of SRH-2D using graphics processing unit (GPU) acceleration methods. Unfortunately, neither goal was achieved during the timeframe of this project, but the research laid the groundwork for future research in this area.
