CGWAVE

CategoryTypeMethodDescription
Coastal Modeling 2D Finite elementCGWAVE is a 2D wave transformation model that can be used to predict wave properties such as wave heights, velocities, pressures, and radiation stresses. The model can be used to simultaneously simulate the effects of refraction, diffraction, reflections by bathymetry and structures, dissipation due to friction and breaking, and nonlinear amplitude dispersion.
