BOUSS-2D: a boussinesq wave model for coastal regions and harbors, Report 1, Theoretical background and user's manual
Nwogu, Okey George.; Demirbilek, Zeki.
Technical ReportBOUSS-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.
