GenCade, Version 1.0 (Update 6)

GenCade is a newly developed numerical model which combines the engineering power of GENESIS and the regional processes capability of the Cascade model. GenCade calculates shoreline change, wave-induced long-shore sand transport, and morphology change at inlets on a local to regional scale and can be applied as a planning or engineering tool. GenCade is operated within the Surface-water Modeling System interface, bringing functionality of a georeferenced environment together with accessibility to other U.S. Army Corps of Engineers numerical models. GenCade is being developed jointly by CIRP and the Regional Sediment Management (RSM) program.

System Requirements:
Surface-water Modeling System (SMS) version 11.1
For the latest version of SMS 11, see SMS entry under the Products menu.
