THE MODELLING OF SHORT WAVES IN SHALLOW WATERS COMPARISON OF NUMERICAL MODELS BASED ON BOUSSINESQ AND SERRE EQUATIONS

M. Brocchini, M. Drago, L. Iovenitti

Abstract


Two different flow models of the surf zone wave-current dynamics based on Boussinesq and Serre equations have been implemented and tested. Good results were obtained while testing the models against many diffent wave and current data sets. A preliminary calibration was tried but further activities are required to define the proper parameters.

Keywords
