Comparison of dispersive and non-dispersive numarical long wave models and harbor agitation

Özbay, Ali
In this study, the evolution of the numerical water wave models with the theoretical background and the governing equations are briefly discussed and a numerical model MIKE21 BW which can be applied to wave problems in nearshore zone is presented. The numerical model is based on the numerical solution of the Boussinesq type equations formulated on time domain. Nonlinearity and frequency dispersion is included in the model. In order to make comparison between the results of nonlinear shallow water equations with Boussinesq terms, MIKE21 BW and NAMIDANCE are applied to the problem of wave propagation in the long distances and runup on simple and composite slopes. The numerical experiments are applied to Datça Marina and the results are compared to the results of the physical experiments on wave disturbance in Datça Marina. In these comparisons the reflection characteristics of different coastal boundaries in the harbor area are tested and the internal parameters in the model are calibrated accordingly. The numerical model MIKE21 BW is applied to skenderun harbor as a case study. The input wave parameters are selected from the wave climate study for Iskenderun Harbor. The model is set up and the agitation inside the harbor is computed according to four different incoming wave scenarios. The disturbance maps inside the harbor for different incoming wave scenarios are obtained. The critical regions v of the harbor according to disturbance under different wave conditions are presented and discussed.


Analytical solutions of shallow-water wave equations
Aydın, Baran; Kanoğlu, Utku; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
Analytical solutions for the linear and nonlinear shallow-water wave equations are developed for evolution and runup of tsunamis –long waves– over one- and two-dimensional bathymetries. In one-dimensional case, the nonlinear equations are solved for a plane beach using the hodograph transformation with eigenfunction expansion or integral transform methods under different initial conditions, i.e., earthquake-generated waves, wind set-down relaxation, and landslide-generated waves. In two-dimensional case, th...
Analytical solutions for evolution and runup of longwaves over a sloping beach
Ceylan, Nihal; Kanoğlu, Utku; Department of Engineering Sciences (2019)
The initial value problem of the linear evolution and runup of long waves on a plane beach is analyzed analytically. The shallow water-wave equations are solved by integral transform and eigenvalue expansion methodologies. The results from linear solutions are compared with the solution of the nonlinear shallow water-wave equations confirming the runup invariance, i.e. nonlinear and linear theories produce same maximum runup. Then, existing analytical nonlinear solution for shoreline motion is implemented f...
A phase diagram for the ice VI-VII-VIII transitions
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (1998-04-01)
In this study we obtain the P-T phase diagram for the ice VI-VII-VIII phase transitions by means of the mean held model developed here. We have fitted the experimentally measured P-T data to our phase Line equations. Our calculated phase diagram describes adequately the observed behavior of the ice VI-VII-VIII phase transitions.
Development of an incompressible navier-stokes solver with alternating cell direction implicit method on structured and unstructured quadrilateral grids
Baş, Onur; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2007)
In this research, the Alternating Cell Direction Implicit method is used in temporal discretisation of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations and compared with the well known and widely used Point Gauss Seidel scheme on structured and quadrilateral unstructured meshes. A two dimensional, laminar and incompressible Navier-Stokes solver is developed for this purpose using the artificial compressibility formulation. The developed solver is used to obtain steady-state solutions with implicit time stepping m...
Comparison of prognostic and diagnostic surface flux modeling approaches over the Nile River basin
Yılmaz, Mustafa Tuğrul; Zaitchik, Ben; Hain, Chris R.; Crow, Wade T.; Ozdogan, Mutlu; Chun, Jong Ahn; Evans, Jason (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2014-01-01)
Regional evapotranspiration (ET) can be estimated using diagnostic remote sensing models, generally based on principles of energy balance closure, or with spatially distributed prognostic models that simultaneously balance both energy and water budgets over landscapes using predictive equations for land surface temperature and moisture states. Each modeling approach has complementary advantages and disadvantages, and in combination they can be used to obtain more accurate ET estimates over a variety of land...
