Project description:

The study on the design optimization of  development for the construction of a small marina in front of hotel of ALMAR S.A.. In the context of the environmental impact assessment, was numerical simulation of waves’ propagation from the deep water to the study area after the construction of port works.

  • 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 a) the wave propagation in the coastal zone and b) wave’s agitation in the small harbour basin. Studied alternative harbor works so that on the one hand not caused adverse impacts on adjacent coasts and the wave height in the new quay walls shall not exceed 0,30 m.
