Abstract

This paper presents a finite-volume method for solving the Shallow- Water Equations (SWE) in a curvilinear coordinate system on an arbitrary over- lapping composite grids. A multi-block technique is implemented. The academic tests are also presented to validate the proposed technique. A typical application of this technique is the simulation of water circulation in marinas and harbor. 1 Introduction Before building a marina, it is indispensable to study its impact on morpho- logical evolution and on marine environment of the adjacent coastal zone. Thus, numerical simulations of tidal, wind-induced currents and wave agi- tation inside and outside the
