Harbor Agitation Due To Offshore Ship Waves Using Swash: A Case Study Of Kumkapi Yacht Park, Istanbul

This study presents the results of a numerical modeling study on the harbor agitation in case of offshore ship waves using SWASH (acronym for Simulating WAves till SHore), a numerical model developed for the simulating unsteady, non-hydrostatic, free-surface, rotational flow and transport phenomena in coastal waters as driven by waves, tides, buoyancy and wind forces (Zijlema et al. 2011). The study area is the Kumkapi Yacht Park, at the Marmara coast of Istanbul, 2.5 km west of the southern entrance of Bosphorus strait. The yacht park is currently used as a fishery harbor, which is severely affected by the ship waves of ferries and sea buses passing nearby almost parallel to the main breakwater of the harbor (aligned from west to east). The park is planned to berth a total of 140 yachts varying from 5 m to 40 m in length (Figure 1). For this purpose, the present harbor layout together with several alternative plans have been studied numerically to investigate agitation due to ship waves of ferries and sea buses considering the design safety requirements of ASCE (2012) for the safe mooring and berthing of yachts.


Numerical modeling of wave diffraction in one-dimensional shoreline change model
Baykal, Cüneyt; Ergin, Ayşen; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
In this study, available coastal models are briefly discussed and under wind waves and a numerical shoreline change model for longshore sediment transport based on “one-line” theory is developed. In numerical model, wave diffraction phenomenon in one-dimensional modeling is extensively discussed and to represent the irregular wave diffraction in the sheltered zones of coastal structures a simpler approach based on the methodology introduced by Kamphuis (2000) is proposed. Furthermore, the numerical model re...
Flow dynamics and mixing processes in hydraulic jump arrays: Implications for channel-lobe transition zones
Dorrell, R. M.; Peakall, J.; Sumner, E. J.; Parsons, D. R.; Darby, S. E.; Wynn, R. B.; Ozsoy, E.; Tezcan, Devrim (2016-11-01)
A detailed field investigation of a saline gravity current in the southwest Black Sea has enabled the first complete analysis of three-dimensional flow structure and dynamics of a series of linked hydraulic jumps in,stratified, density-driven, flows. These field observations were collected using an acoustic Doppler current profiler mounted on an autonomous underwater vehicle, and reveal that internal mixing processes in hydraulic jumps, including flow expansion and recirculation, provide a previously unreco...
Numerical modeling of wind wave induced longshore sediment transport
Şafak, Ilgar; Ergin, Ayşen; Department of Civil Engineering (2006)
In this study, a numerical model is developed to determine shoreline changes due to wind wave induced longshore sediment transport, by solving sediment continuity equation and taking one line theory as a base, in existence of seawalls, groins, T-groins, offshore breakwaters and beach nourishment projects, 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 wi...
Parallel computation of flows around flapping airfoils in biplane configuration
Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Kaya, Muhammed Çağrı (2002-05-22)
Unsteady, laminar flows over flapping airfoils in biplane configuration are computed on overset grids. The overset grid solutions are obtained in parallel in a cluster environment. It is shown that airfoils in biplane configuration and oscillating in pitch and plunge with a proper phase shift between them enhance the thrust production significantly.
Terrain modeling and atmospheric turbulent flow solutions based on meteorological weather forecast data
Leblebici, Engin; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2012)
In this study, atmospheric and turbulent flow solutions are obtained using meteorological flowfield and topographical terrain data in high resolution. The terrain topology of interest, which may be obtained in various resolution levels, is accurately modeled using structured or unstructured grids depending on whether high-rise building models are present or not. Meteorological weather prediction software MM5, is used to provide accurate and unsteady boundary conditions for the solution domain. Unsteady turb...
