Clawpack (“Conservation Laws Package”) is a collection of finite volume methods for linear and nonlinear hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. Clawpack employs high-resolution Godunov-type methods with limiters in a general framework applicable to many kinds of waves.
More detailed information and CLAWPACK user documentation can be found at the Clawpack website.
The Clawpack 5.4.0 suite has been installed into the DesignSafe Jupyter Hub environment. It is available for use with Python2 both from the command-line and in Jupyter notebooks. If using python2 from the terminal, you'll want to use the binaries located in '/opt/conda/envs/python2/bin'. To start using Clawpack:
An example GeoClaw notebook in Jupyter can be seen by navigating to 'community / Jupyter Notebooks / Workspace Application Sample Notebooks / GeoClaw' and opening 'GeoClaw_topotools_example.ipynb', and can be previewed and copied to your own space from here.
