Computer simulation models of large or geometrically complex systems, or both, are found in hydraulic, hydrology and water resources engineering; they require automized interactive mesh generators and data processors for efficient project implementation. A preprocessor is reviewed that consists of data processors, mesh generators, and graphics routines; it is capable of: (1) Selecting the most suitable numerical method for solving water resources and related problems; (2) storing the system's boundaries and generating appropriate meshes; and (3) displaying intermediates as well as final results of the computer simulation model in graphical form. This interactive preprocessor is a flexible, portable and easy-to-use software package which facilitates the research and development work of scientists and engineers.
