Shoaling of nonlinear steady waves: maximum height and angle of breaking
A Fourier approximation method is used for modeling and simu- lation of fully nonlinear steady waves. The set of resulting nonlinear equations are solved by Newton’s method. The shoaling of waves is simulated based on ...
Numerical simulation of extreme wave runup during storm events in Tramandaí Beach, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
We present a high resolution analysis of the interaction of irregular waves with natural and urban structures leading to extreme wave runup. Horizontal runup data, instantaneous flooding maps, and wave propagation beyond ...
