EVALUATION OF NUMERICAL MODELS ON WAVE-CURRENT INTERACTIONS

Jung L. Lee, Hsiang Wang

Abstract


Five contemporary numerical models on wave-current interactions are evaluated in this paper. The bases of evaluation are mathematical exactness, degree of computational difficulty and practical applicability in terms of the abilities of handling shoaling, refraction, diffraction, reflection and wave-current interaction. Recommendations are given in matrix form on the relative merit of each model.

Keywords
