FINITE ELEMENT MODEL FOR ESTUARIES WITH INTER-TIDAL FLATS

Bruno Herrling

Abstract


This paper deals with finite element formulations for the numerical computation of two-dimensional incompressible long period shallow water waves. The described mathematical model is used to reproduce the dynamic situation occurring at the tidal propagation in estuaries. Areas which fall dry and wet again within a tidal cycle - so called inter-tidal flats - are taken into account.
