© Copyright 2016 by the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE).Tsunamis generated by earthquakes generally propagate as long waves in the deep ocean and may be mathematically described by the shallow water equations (SWEs). Tsunami propagation and inundation usually involve a vast problem domain, which requires a highly efficient numerical model to provide accurate predictions. In this work, a hydrodynamic model that solves the 2D SWEs using a finite volume Godunov-type shock-capturing scheme is comprehensively tested on different hardware devices, covering both Central Processing Units (CPU) and Graphics Processing Units (GPU), for efficient tsunami modeling.
