Abstract


A 2-D numerical model has been developed to simulate wave propagation prior to breaking. This non linear hydrodynamic model works in connection with various spectral analysis routines. This paper intends to study the propagation effects on the wave time-series and on the corresponding spectral density functions in order to gain insight on both the spectral description of waves and irregular wave propagation.

Keywords


wave spectra; spectra propagation; Boussinesq equations
