THREE DESIGN SYSTEMS FOR APPLICATIONS IB COASTAL ENGINEERING

M.B. Abbott, J. Aa. Bertelsen, A. Verwey

Abstract


The Computational Hydraulics Centre in Copenhagen has developed three design systems for applications in hydraulics, coastal and offshore engineering. Each system constitutes a software - documentation entity that automatically constructs and runs mathematical models of a specific class when presented only with the model description. The systems concerned are as follows: System 11, "Siva", is restricted to 1-dimensional flows of 1-layer (vertically homogeneous) fluids. System 21, "Jupiter", applies to 2-dimensional flows of 1-layer fluids. Systems 12/13 and 22/23, "Neptune", apply to 1-dimensional flows with 2 or 3 layers for the 12/13 and 2-dimensional flows with 2 or 3 layers for the 22/23. Brief descriptions of these systems follow.
