FUNWAVE-TVD Workshop 2018


FUNWAVE-TVD Workshop 2018 was held at the University of Delaware, Newark, DE from 25–27 July 2018. This workshop is organized by the Center for Applied Coastal Research (CACR), University of Delaware and the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC). The workshop is open to all FUNWAVE users and interested parties.

This workshop focused on some new features added to the model recently, such as ship-wake generation, sediment transport, and model coupling and nesting framework. It also covered general topics, including the modeling of nearshore surface waves and processes such as harbor resonance, nearshore wave transformation, refraction and diffraction with complex geometries, nearshore circulation, and tsunami propagation and inundation from ocean basin- to nearshore-scales.The three-day workshop included hands-on training sessions for new users, as well as technical talks from the community of practicing and experienced users.

The workshop was hosted on Mills Cluster
