A NUMERICAL MODEL OF STORM WAVES IN SHALLOW WATER

A. Hauguel

Abstract


For studying storm waves in coastal areas, usual waves theories are no more valid. The presented enoidal theory allows the modelling of these problems. Furthermore, thanks to its non-linear properties, it makes possible the simulation of many phenomena usually neglected. A numerical model using this theory has been developped. it has been tested against analytical results and certain properties of non-linear waves experimentaly observed. Finaly, the practical problems raised by the utilisation of this model for harbour agitation computations, have been solved.
