Description: Technical Report
BOUSS-2D is a comprehensive numerical model for simulating the propagation and transformation of ocean waves in coastal regions and harbors. The model is based on depth-integrated Boussinesq-type mass and momentum equations for nonlinear-dispersive waves. The equations describes most of the wave transformation phenomena of interest in coastal regions and harbors including shoaling, refraction, diffraction, reflection, nonlinear wave-wave interactions, and wave breaking. This manual describes the theoretical background behind the model and the steps involved in setting up and running model.
