Abstract : This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) describes the mathematical formulation, numerical implementation, and input specifications of tide gates in the Coastal Modeling System (CMS) operated through the Surface-water Modeling System (SMS). A coastal application at an idealized inlet is provided to illustrate the implementation procedure and demonstrate the model capability. A tide gate is an opening structure built across a river or a channel in an estuarine system. By preventing saltwater intrusion to farm land and allowing freshwater drainage to the estuary, tide gates are commonly used for flow and flooding control, and salinity and sediment management (Figure 1). Because a tide gate is a significant component of hydrodynamic and sediment transport controls in the coastal zone, it is important to incorporate the structure and to simulate its effect in the CMS. The CMS, developed by the Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP), is an integrated suite of numerical models for simulating water surface elevation, current, waves, sediment transport, and morphology change in coastal and inlet applications. It consists of a hydrodynamic and sediment transport model, CMS-Flow, and a spectral wave model CMS-Wave (Sanchez et al. 2011a; Sanchez et al. 2011b; Lin et al. 2011). Both are described in Part I of this series (Li et al. 2013).
