Abstract:

Numerical models are presented that calculate waves generated by an explosion and propagate them across deep and shallow water and through a wave-breaking zone to shore. The models are verified by comparisons with waves measured during both small- and large-scale field tests that used high explosives to generate waves. Detailed documentation of the models and sample calculations are provided. Author
