A STEADY-STATE WAVE MODEL FOR COASTAL APPLICATIONS

Donald T. Resio

Abstract


A steady-state spectral model is presented. This model produces a solution equivalent to a full time-stepping spectral model, but at much reduced computational times. Comparisons shown here demonstrate that the spectral model provides a good representation of shallow-water wave propagation phenomena and that wind effects can significantly influence near-coast wave conditions.
