Numerical modeling of wave propagation, breaking and run-up on a beach

Abstract

A numerical method for free-surface flow is presented at the aim of studying water waves in coastal areas. The method builds on the nonlinear shallow water equations and utilizes a non-hydrostatic pressure term to describe short waves. A vertical boundary-fitted grid is used with the water depth divided into a number of layers. A compact finite difference… (More)
