Numerical modelling of wave propagation using parabolic approximation with a boundary-fitted co-ordinate system. (English) Zbl 0691.76011
Summary: With a boundary-fitted curvilinear co-ordinate system, the parabolic approximation is applied to the mild-slope equation to describe the wave propagation. Both refraction and diffraction are included in the numerical model. Because the shoreline coincides with one of the curvilinear co-ordinates, the numerical model can be used to compute wave propagations near an irregular shoreline.
