Project description:

In the context of coastal engineering study, was a) numerical simulation of waves’ transformation from deep water to the study area and b) numerical modelling of sediment transport under wave’s  action.

  • Numerical modeling: simulation of wave’s transformation with CGWAVE software package which solves the equation for mild slope equation mild, and is based on the method of Xu, Demirbilek and Panchang (1996), taking into account the refraction, diffraction and reflection of sea waves. Calculated the wave propagation in the coastal zone.
  • Artificial beaches: Calculated the median grain size in order to design the beach profile by using numerical simulation’s models (SBEACH).
