USE OF A COMPUTATIONAL MODEL FOR TWO-DIMENSIONAL TIDAL FLOW

Jan J. Leendertse

Abstract


The numerical solution of tidal hydraulic problems has been greatly facilitated In the last decade by the development of high-speed large-memory computers. Problems which only could be studied by use of hydraulic models can now readily be studied with mathematical models if the computational techniques for solutions are developed. Unfortunately the difficulties in formulating usable methods for these complicated problems in fluid dynamics are formidable, particularly if the problems are multidimensional in space. As a result the numerical solution approach to these hydraulic problems has generally been limited and has not kept pace with the increased capabilities of the presently available computers. In this paper a new approach is given to the solution of two-dimensional tidal flow in shallow water.
