Abstract: In this report, the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, presents a numerical modeling study using FUNWAVE-TVD to investigate ship-induced waves of large container-type vessels with related erosion and scour effects. The new vessel wake generating models implemented in the FUNWAVE-TVD Vessel Module are presented and validated against field data in the Sabine-Neches Waterway, Texas. Utilizing the Sediment Transport and Morphology Change Modules, ship wake-induced erosion is analyzed to assess potential impacts to Sabine-to-Galveston Hurricane Flood Protection Systems.
