Flow over a ripple-covered bed in waves

    Project Details

    Description

    Turbulence modelling of wave/current flow over a ripple-covered bed has been achieved by a k-omega model. The model has been validated, using the results of an experimental study carried out earlier at ISVA. Mean, turbulence, and hydraulic-resistance properties of the flow have been obtained. The project has been funded partially by Marine Technique (STVF) and EU (Coastal Morphodynamics, MAST2
