APPLICATION OF A NESTED NUMERICAL MODEL TO IDEALISED RECTANGULAR HARBOURS

Roger A. Falconer, Lida Mardapitta-Hadjipandeli

Abstract


The paper gives details of a two-dimensional depth averaged nested numerical model and its application to a range of idealised rectangular harbours, having a constant plan cross-sectional area and varying length to breadth ratios. The main aims of the study have been to investigate the problems associated with nested numerical modelling and to apply this modelling approach to assess the influence of the shape of a harbour on its natural tidal flushing efficiency and mixing characteristics.
