Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN provides a description of a methodology for the computer-based calibration or Parameter Estimation PE and corresponding Uncertainty Analysis UA for the shoreline change model GenCade developed by the US Army Corps of Engineers. This work demonstrates the suitability and benefits of applying the proposed PE and UA methods to GenCade studies using an idealized case as well as a simple field study as a proof of concept. This document is primarily for engineers and decision-makers interested in the implementation of PE and UA in one-line shoreline change models such as GenCade.
