Abstract: In this study, wave overtopping of coastal structures in the surf zone is investigated numerically. Simulations are performed with the use of a Boussinesq-type model. The model incorporates high-order equations with improved dispersion characteristics. These equations are capable of modeling dispersive wave propagation even in deep water conditions. Wave breaking and bottom friction are also included in the model while a linear extrapolation technique is used to describe wave run-up on steep slopes. Model results are evaluated using experimental measurements conducted in wave flumes. Tests involving wave run-up on a plane beach and wave overtopping of permeable and impermeable breakwaters are considered. The analysis demonstrates that the model results had good agreements with the experiments except for some deficiencies in cases of complex flow structures.
Description: Paper presented at The Seventh International Conference on HydroScience and Engineering (ICHE) hosted by the College of Engineering at Drexel Univeristy on September 10-13, 2006 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The conference theme was IT in the Field of HydroSciences. It included several mini-symposia that emphasized IT topics in HydroSciences and the yearly meeting of the metadata group of the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange organization.
