An Energetic Type Model for the Cross shore Distribution of Total Longshore Sediment Transport Rate

Baykal, Cüneyt
Güler, Işıkhan
This paper presents an energetic-based simple approach for the computation of cross-shore distribution of total longshore sediment transport (LST) rates. The proposed approach (Baykal 2012) follows similar assumptions with the given formula of Bayram et al. (2007) for the total LST rate (Qlst,t) across the surf zone and is applied to investigate the relation between the rate of dissipation in wave energy flux due to wave breaking and total longshore sediment flux using the available laboratory measurements of Wang et al. (2002) and Gravens and Wang (2007) and the field measurements carried out at Duck site, North Carolina, USA between years 1995-1998 (Miller 1999). The proposed approach is also compared with some of the available distributed total load models. From the comparative studies, it is found that the proposed approach shows good agreement with both the laboratory and field measurements, using a single empirical constant, both qualitatively and quantitatively, especially for the cases where the wave conditions are highly energetic (both for plunging and spilling type breakers) and the suspended load is the main mode of sediment transport in the surf zone.


A One Line Numerical Model for Wind Wave Induced Shoreline Changes
Ergin, Ayşen; Güler, Işıkhan; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Baykal, Cüneyt (null; 2006-10-13)
A numerical model is developed to determine wind wave induced shoreline changes by solving sand continuity equation and taking one line theory as a base, in existence of Igroins and T-groins, whose dimensions and locations may be given arbitrarily. The model computes the transformation of deep water wave characteristics up to the surf zone and eventually gives the result of shoreline changes with user-friendly visual outputs. Herein, a modification to a readily accepted one-line model as sheltering effect o...
A Branch and Bound Algorithm for a Multi-Mode Project Scheduling Problem With a Single Non-Renewable Resource
Altıntaş, Cansu; Azizoğlu, Meral (2020-04-01)
In this paper, a project scheduling problem with multi-modes and a single non-renewable resource is considered. The resource is released in pre-specified times at pre-specified quantities. An activity can be executed at different modes where a mode is defined by a processing time and a resource requirement amount. The objective is to minimize the project completion time. A branch and bound algorithm that enumerates the partial solutions based on the mode assignment decisions is presented. The results of the...
A tunable multi-band metamaterial design using micro-split SRR structures
EKMEKÇİ, Evren; TOPALLI, Kagan; Akın, Tayfun; Sayan, Gönül (2009-08-31)
This paper presents the results of a feasibility study for the design of multi-band tunable metamaterials based on the use of micro-split SRR (MSSRR) structures. In this study, we have designed and constructed a conventional split-ring resonator (SRR) unit cell (type A) and two modified SRR unit cells having the same design parameters except that they contain two (type B) or four (type C) additional micro-splits on the outer square ring, along the arm having the main split. Transmission characteristics of t...
The optimal reservoir configuration for maximum productivity index of gas reservoirs depleted by horizontal wells under Darcy and non-Darcy flow conditions
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (2018-01-01)
A new approach for estimating productivity index of horizontal wells depleting finite gas reservoirs is introduced in this paper. This approach focuses on using reservoir configurations and anisotropy as well as wellbore length for calculating productivity index at pseudo-steady state conditions when production time is no longer affects reservoir performance. The paper also aims to determine the optimal reservoir configurations that could give the maximum productivity index.
A discontinuous subgrid eddy viscosity method for the time-dependent Navier-Stokes equations
Kaya Merdan, Songül (Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2005-01-01)
In this paper we provide an error analysis of a subgrid scale eddy viscosity method using discontinuous polynomial approximations for the numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Optimal continuous in time error estimates of the velocity are derived. The analysis is completed with some error estimates for two fully discrete schemes, which are first and second order in time, respectively.
