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 in artificial beaches.

  • 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.
  • Sediment transport : The stability of the cross-section and sediment diameter appropriate for the construction of two artificial beaches was by application of model SBEACH, which calculates the rate of change of the coast and the bottom’s profile, taking into account the bottom’s slope, quality of the bottom (mean diameter of sediment) and the characteristics of waves (height, angle, period). The waves’ time series established by statistical data 40 years according.
