I am excited to announce the launch of the v1.0 of my software Hydro-UQ. Hydro-UQ provides a user-friendly graphical interface tool that enables researchers to assess the performance of a building subjected to loading due to tsunami and storm surge hazards. Hydro-UQ advances the capabilities of the natural hazards engineering community by coupling the 2D shallow water equation solvers to the 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solvers for near-shore and wave runup simulations. I also partnered closely with the NHERI Coastal Wave/Surge and Tsunami Experimental Facility located at Oregon State University to develop a digital twin of their wave flume at the O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory. The current release of the Hydro-UQ Application facilitates the design of experiments at this facility and others through easily configurable geometric boundaries.

You can find the source code on Github / Zenodo. You can also download the installer from the SimCenter webpage.
