Abstract

Nonlinear wave modeling in very shallow water S.T. Grilli, R. Subramanya Ocean Engineering Department, University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI 02881, USA ABSTRACT An existing model based on fully nonlinear potential flow equations is used to study wave propagation. The solution approach combines a higher-order Boundary Element Method (BEM) for solving Laplace's equation at a given time, and Lagrangian Taylor expansions for the time updating of the free surface position and potential^ Keywords
