FIFTH COASTLAB TEACHING SCHOOL

Coastal Numerical Models

May 21 – 23, 2012 | Porto, Portugal
www.fe.up.pt/~coastlab

A hands-on application-oriented course featuring wave modeling, sediment transport modelling, coastal morphology modeling, and conceptual design of breakwaters.

COURSE DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES

This course is designed as a hands-on application-oriented training. The 3-day course is divided into providing practical introduction to the basics of hydrodynamics, sediment transport and morphology modelling and how to get started with selected 2D and 3D models. The course aims at enabling students to set up and run simulations with COULWAVE, IH-2VOF, DHI coastal models, and DELTARES coastal models.
