An important part of the software is the documentation - the technical manuals that describe the operation and use of the program. As part of our effort to create a high level software tool for fluvial simulations, we want to provide all users with proper and comprehensive documentation in an easily accessible form as PDF-files.
If you are new to BASEMENT, you might prefer to read the documents below before starting with the installation.
After the installation, you might want to go through the User Manual which describes the overall topic of hydraulic and morphologic simulations or have a look at the FAQ. A more detailed documentation is the Reference Manual describing the classes, interfaces and input syntax of the program.
