Instruction ReportAbstract: TABS-2 is a generalized numerical modeling system for open-channel flows, sedimentation, and constituent transport. It consists of more than 40 computer programs to perform modeling and related tasks. The major modeling components -- RMA-2V, STUDH, and RMA-4 -- calculate two-dimensional, depth-averaged flows, sedimentation, and dispersive transport, respectively. The other programs in the system perform digitizing. mesh generation, data management, graphical display, output analysis, and model interfacing tasks. Utilities include file management and automatic generation of computer job control instructions. TABS-2 has been applied to a variety of waterways, including rivers, estuaries, bays, and marshes. It's designed for use by engineers and scientists who may not have a rigorous computer background. Use of the various components is described in Appendices A-O. The bound version of the report does not include the appendices. A loose-leaf form with Appendices A-O is distributed to system users. NOTE: The ERDC library can make the loose-leaf version of the text available for those who want to peruse the appendices. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
