Hydro3D is an open-source Large-Eddy Simulation based code used for hydraulic engineering applications and has been recently developed to simulate tidal stream turbines. Hydro3D is written in FORTRAN 95 and is parallelised with MPI, both required to be installed prior code compilation. For a more detailed description of Hydro3D, its current development and related publications please visit: http://hydro3dproject.github.io/

Note that the current dataset gathers the input files set to simulate a single horizontal axis tidal stream turbine operating at its maximum performance and with artificial turbulence at the inflow condition. 

The input files (.cin) used in Hydro3D are:

- control.cin - in this file all the flow conditions, numerical schemes and output parameters are set.

- geom.cin - is used to define the properties of any solid body (e.g. tidal turbine) used during the simulation.

- mdmap.cin and infodom.cin - these files indicate the division pattern of the computational domain in rectangular blocks together with their assignation to CPUs.
