Preface -- 1. Introduction to water wave modeling -- 2. Review of Hydrodynamics -- 3. Water Wave Theories and wave phenomena -- 4. Numerical Methods -- 5. Water wave models -- 6. Modeling of wave-structure interaction -- 7. Summary.
An introduction to various types of wave models. For each model, the theoretical assumptions, the application range, and the advantages and limitations are elaborated. The combined use of different wave models from large-scale to local-scale is highlighted with a detailed discussion of the application and matching of boundary conditions. At the same time the book provides a grounding in hydrodynamics, wave theory, and numerical methods which underlie wave modelling. It presents the theoretical background and also shows how to use these models for achieving different engineering tasks, illustrated and reinforced with case study examples.
