There's a fair amount of prep work involved in seaports, reactors, pipelines and so you would like the simulated tsunami to damage. There are also 24 key econometric values we supply - once all that is set then it is time for true parallel programming.
KLIPSPRINGER then offers the user a choice: (1) the user can select one Richter value and one location (by degree of longitude and latitude) for the generating earthquake
KLIPSPRINGER will work its way through various Richters from 5.0 to 9.2 and a series of longitude-latitude pairs. The app takes a quick look at how many cores are available (and whether there is HyperThreading) and then starts launching threads. All the threads do the same thing:
calculate the human casualties (dead, injured, homeless) and immediate economic damage.
