SMS integrates and simplifies the process of hydraulic and coastal modeling including
circulation, wave transformation, and sediment transport by bringing together all of the
tools needed to complete a successful study. SMS provides a comprehensive graphical
environment for numerical modeling and tools for site characterization, model conceptual-
ization, mesh and grid generation, and graphical visualization. Using SMS can save time
and money, as much as 30 percent on overall project design costs.
SMS is available for PC operating systems. It runs on Windows platforms which include
Windows 98, NT, 2000, and XP. The current version of SMS provides a complete
