2D Dam Break

Last Updated on: 2024-05-15

This benchmark focuses on the 2D Dam Break simulation, this simulation models the sudden release of water from a dam in a two-dimensional setting, capturing the rapid propagation of flood waves and their interaction with the environment. This simulation is crucial for analyzing flood dynamics, evaluating potential hazards, and improving flood management strategies.

Execution times comparison

Faster execution times are better

Cost vs Time

The following plot shows how the execution times and costs vary with the number of cores for each machine family. For this specific simulation we take advantage of having some cores (up to a point), with c2d and c3d families being the most cost-effective.
