Background :

With the increasingly clear risk of global warming, possibly due to greenhouse effects, and resulting sea level rise due to icecap melting, coastal protection is becoming a problem of major concern in many countries having large regions with low level coastal areas. In the US, the result of a one-meter sea level rise scenario, as some forecasting studies predict by the year 2,050, would be disastrous, not only in terms of lost land area but the increased frequency of severely damaging storms for various existing coastal developments (e.g., harbors, industries, real estate, recreational beaches...).

As a result of these concerns, over the past decade, a renewal of activity has been stimulated in the coastal research community for developing more accurate predictions of environmental forcing from waves and currents and more reliable, and thus more economical, design methods under extreme wave loading, for both artificially renourished beaches and structures used for coastal protection. These are the main focuses of  coastal engineering.

Wave propagation studies start with predictions of wave characteristics in deep water, based on available or predicted wind data (hindcasting/forecasting). Deep water waves are then propagated over shallow water topography up to the shore where shoaling and breaking occur. In natural (or renourished) beaches, the momentum flux released by breaking waves creates set-up and surf-zone currents (longshore and cross-shore). These currents are the main forcing for littoral sediment transport and, ultimately, the cause of beach erosion and shoreline recession observed in many coastal environments (e.g. Rhode Island). On protected shorelines, waves (broken or unbroken) impinge on coastal structures (e.g., groins, jetties, seawalls, breakwaters,...) and induce hydrodynamic pressures and forces under which both the structure and its foundation must be stable.

Coastal structures are usually made of a combination of emerged and submerged rubble mound berms and, in some cases, of a capping vertical or slightly sloping seawall. Under extreme storm waves and simultaneous increase in Mean Water Level (MWL) due to storm surge (possibly worsened by sea level rise), capping seawalls can be subjected to direct impact loads from breaking waves. Hence, new design procedures must be developed to better estimate both the local (structural) and global stability against overturning of seawalls under extreme wave impact. Since beaches and most coastal structures are made of porous material, wave-induced flow and pore pressure transmission through porous media, are also topics of importance in coastal engineering research.

In all of the above problems, characteristics of breaking waves are the prime factors for predicting the magnitude of both littoral currents and impact forces on structures and/or flow through structures. Wave transformations up to breaking and littoral current generation are thus the objects of intense research in the coastal engineering/science academic and industrial community, as well as in federal agencies with branches dealing with nearshore problems (NRL, ONR, NSF, ARO,...). In addition, for the latter agencies affiliated with DOD, the gathering of data and information useful for littoral warfare is of great concern, due to its increasing importance to the defense community. A detailed knowledge, i.e. prediction, of characteristics of nearshore waves and currents and of their relationship with bottom topography (and vice versa), indeed, is required for the success of military operations in coastal regions, particularly in foreign lands for which little or no data is available.

Finally, coastal engineering must also deal with projects involving water quality and environmental problems. Waves, currents, and sediment transport effects on sewage outfalls, de-salination plant intakes, or oil containment equipment, for instance, are but a few of the problems where the fate of either solid or fluid contaminants must be predicted under specified or forecast environmental conditions.



Project summary :

Since 1980, I have worked on developing and improving various numerical models of wave propagation in coastal areas. These models were tested and validated versus analytical and experimental results, and then used as tools to gain insight into coastal processes. The present project deals with the development of a numerical model for fully nonlinear water waves and wave-structure interaction. I started developing this model while working at the University of Delaware and continued upgrading it since joining URI. This model is considered as one of the most versatile models of its kind and has been/is used (or re-developed) at a few other Universities, both in the US and abroad (e.g., Caltech (Passadena), U. of Southern California (Los Angeles), U. of Cantabria (Santander, Spain), and U. of Toulon (France)). In its most recent applications, the model is being used as a tool (``numerical wave tank''), in combination with laboratory experiments, for investigating many different problems of interest to ocean engineering.

In 1991, I received funding from NSF and, in 1992 and 1993, from URI Seagrant for upgrading, further developing, and documenting this model. In 1994 and 1996, I received funding from NRL (ONR) to use this model as a tool to study nearshore wave propagation. Intensive computations of wave shoaling over slopes were conducted, to analyze shoaling properties of nonlinear waves over various specified nearshore bottom topographies. This has required developing and testing a new absorbing beach for the model.

The latest developments in this project deal with the so-called depth-inversion problem in shallow water. In this problem, one attempts to predict the shape of the ocean bottom based on observed properties of waves on the free surface (e.g., obtained through remote sensing). Most state-of-the-art methods are still based on using linear wave theory to predict wave properties. This, however, may be inaccurate in shallow water, due to strong wave nonlinearity. Using nonlinear properties of shoaling waves calculated in a fully nonlinear wave model, I developed two new depth-inversion algorithms and tested them on various mildly sloping bottoms. Preliminary results indicate a 3-10 factor improvement in accuracy, as compared to results obtained using linear wave theory.

At all stages of model developments, laboratory experiments were used for calibrating and verifying numerical results. These were generally obtained in collaboration with other institutions (e.g., U. of Delaware, and U. of Cantabria (Santander, Spain)).
