Project description:

The study on protection against the wave’s attack and compensation for damage caused by seismic activity. In the context of the technical study of the quay wall, was numerical simulation of waves transformation from deep deep water to the quay wall’s area.

  • 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 front of the quay wall.
