Overtopping of solitary waves at model sea dikes

1991-01-01
This paper discusses an analytical model for solitary wave overtopping at sea dikes. The model is based on the 'weir flow analogy' of Kikkawa et al.(1968). Results of laboratory test on smooth and impermeable model dikes with angles of 45°, 60° and 90° are utilized in constructing the model. Results for solitary waves are compared with those for regular oscillatory waves for the case of vertical dike.

Implementation of Antarctic Krill into the Ocean-Ecosystem Model FESOM-REcoM-2 and its Effects on Southern Ocean Biogeochemistry.
Karakus, Onur; Hauck, Judith; Völker, Christoph; Fach Salihoğlu, Bettina Andrea; Hagen, Wilhelm (2020-01-16)
In this study, a three-dimensional, coupled ocean ecosystem model (FESOM- REcoM2) is used to investigate the effect of krill on the biogeochemistry of the Southern Ocean. The implementation of Antarctic krill in the model was done in three steps. 1) A second zooplankton group was implemented, which grazes on diatoms, mesozooplankton and nanophytoplankton (in order of descending preference). 2) A new detritus group was added to the model, which represents faster-sinking krill faecal pellets. 3) The grazing i...
Development of a numerical 2-dimensional beach evolution model
Baykal, Cüneyt (2014-01-01)
This paper presents the description of a 2-dimensional numerical model constructed for the simulation of beach evolution under the action of wind waves only over the arbitrary land and sea topographies around existing coastal structures and formations. The developed beach evolution numerical model is composed of 4 submodels: a nearshore spectral wave transformation model based on an energy balance equation including random wave breaking and diffraction terms to compute the nearshore wave characteristics, a ...
Simulation of surface waves generated by a rapid rise of a block at the sea bottom
Şenol, Nalan; Aydın, İsmail; Department of Civil Engineering (2005)
A mathematical model is developed for investigating time dependent surface deformations of a hydrostatic water volume, when it is subjected to a sudden partial rise of the sea bottom. In the model, 2-dimensional, compressible, and viscous Navier-Stokes equations are solved by Marker and Cell (MAC) method. Variable mesh size in both horizontal and vertical directions with a staggered grid arrangement is used. Limited compressibility model is utilized for pressure. Various computational tests are done for the...
Generation of surface waves due to sudden movements at the sea bottom
Kırlangıç, Özgür Ulaş; Aydın, İsmail; Department of Civil Engineering (2004)
A mathematical model is developed for investigating time dependent surface deformations of a hydrostatic water volume, when it is subjected to a sudden partial collapse or rise of the sea bottom. The model solves two-dimensional Navier-Stokes Equations on a vertical plane numerically by using Marker and Cell Method (MAC) for viscous and compressible fluid including all the nonlinear effects in the solution. For demonstration, a vertical motion was given to a section in a hypothetical reservoir bed within a ...
CHAOTIC DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF VISCOELASTIC SHALLOW SPHERICAL-SHELLS
Karaesmen, Engin; ILERI, L; AKKAS, N (Elsevier BV, 1992-08-03)
This paper investigates the dynamic behaviour of a shallow, viscoelastic, spherical shell under a harmonic excitation. The time evolutions of the response of the corresponding nonlinear dynamical system are described by the phase portraits and the bifurcation of the parameter dependent system is studied numerically so as to identify qualitative changes in the phase portrait. The viscoelastic shell, having more than one equilibrium configuration for some problem parameters, shows periodic and/or random-like ...
