Test Problems

The following test problems have been developed to validate the model by exercising various components of the code and to illustrate the input structure required for various kinds of scenarios. In brief, we have:

For each of these cases, we provide the environmental file along with the print-out from KRAKEN . The CPU times printed were obtained on a 0.5 megaflop workstation.

In all cases, the frequency is chosen as and the transmission loss is computed for a source/receiver depth combination of and respectively. The transmission loss plots show an overlay of KRAKEN (solid line), KRAKENC (dotted line) and SCOOTER (dashed line) results. These results have also been checked against the NRL FSTFLD code which agrees to within (usually less).
