Transient Waves and Beaches
The purpose of this research is to validate the numerical model Celeris and to study how reefs affect the inundation at the shoreline. Two setups were used: one with two conical island oriented shore perpendicular and the same with an offshore artificial reef. The results of the inundation provided by Celeris versus the inundation in the basin (estimated using optical measurement techniques) were examined and compared. There is a noticeable difference between the numerical model and physical results. Further studies are needed to determine what caused a different result between numerical simulated and physical modelling.
