After starting Python, import the anuga module with

>>> import anuga

To save repetition, in the documentation we assume that ANUGA has been imported this way.

If importing ANUGA fails, it means that Python cannot find the installed module. Check your installation and your PYTHONPATH.

The following Domain class is available:


This class initializes a domain object.

Initialize a ANUGA Model with

>>> domain = anuga.Domain()

Once a Domain is initialized, there are several options available to setup the domain (initial conditions, boundary conditions, operators) and run the model (evolve).


ANUGA models the effect of tsunamis and flooding upon a terrain mesh.
