APPLICABILITY OF A NEW HYBRID PARAMETRIC WAVE PREDICTION MODEL

Yoshio Hatada, Masataka Yamaguchi

Abstract


DOLPHIN-I is a new hybrid parametric deep water wave prediction model developed by the authors. This paper examines the applicability of DOLPHIN-I, on the basis of the comparison of the computation with the data of significant waves obtained in five sea areas with different horizontal scales around Japan during monsoons and typhoons. In particular, the wave data in Osaka Bay includes frequency and directional spectra. It is verified that the model practicality is excellent, because it reproduces well the wave data observed in any concerned sea area.
