NUMERICAL MODELLING OF WAVES AND CURRENTS WITH REGARD TO COASTAL STRUCTURES

M. Fischer, J. Juhl, E.B. Rasmussen

Abstract


This paper describes a two-dimensional numercial model capable of simulating non-stationary flows. Special emphasis has been put on wave motion on and in porous structures, e.g. a rubble mound breakwater. Comparisons of numerical simulations with analytical solutions and model test results have confirmed the applicability of this model for studies of waves and currents with regard to coastal structures.
