A THREE DIMENSIONAL MODEL FOR WAVE INDUCED CURRENTS

Bin Li, Roger J. Maddrell

Abstract


In this paper, a three-dimensional model which is based on the Navier-stokes equations is developed. The finite volume method and a time-splitting technique are used to solve the equations. Longshore and crossshore currents induced by waves are reproduced by the model and the results are compared with existing experimental data.

Keywords


current; wave induced current; current model; 3D model
