A TURBULENT TRANSPORT MODEL OF COASTAL PROCESSES

Y. Peter Sheng

Abstract


A second-order closure model of turbulent transport and recent model applications to some problems of practical importance in coastal engineering are presented. Particular examples considered are the turbulent wave boundary layer under a linear and a cnoidal wave; current-wave interaction within the bottom boundary layer; mixed layer dynamics; wind-driven currents in a channel. Comparisons are made between the computed results and field/laboratory data.
