Abstract:

This report is published to provide coastal engineers with the results of a study to develop an operational program for numerical simulation of storm surges on a given segment of the Continental Shelf, using a curvilinear coordinate system. The report consists of two volumes. This Volume discusses the theory and application of the transformation procedure for generating the curvilinear shelf coordinate system for particular regions, and the theory, numerical algorithm, and application of the storm surge program for simulation of Hurricanes Carla 1961, Camille 1969, and Gracie 1959. Volume II presents the program documentation and the coded programs for carrying out the coordinate transformation CONFORM, for establishing the spatial lattice GRID, and for carrying out the storm surge calculations on the shelf SSURGE. The work was carried out under the wave mechanics program of the U.S. Army Coastal Engineering Research Center CERC.
