Course Objective

The objectives of this course is to enable students to understand and apply all aspects of physical and mathematical modeling for coastal engineering problems. In the course, differential equations of wave motion, dimensionless presentations and scaling, initial and boundary conditions, analytical solutions, numerical solutions, computer experiments on selected problems will be taught. Additionally physical models of wind waves and long waves on a rigid bed, models with movable bed, estuarine and other physical models are also be covered.
