Abstract:

The report gives two chapters of a workbook about the shoreline response numerical model GENESIS. These chapters focus on two important aspects of the simulation system 1 error and warning messages, why they are issued and remedial measures and 2 interpretation and presentation of simulation results. The modeling system GENESIS, developed over the last decade, is now available to the Corps of Engineer Districts. The main objective of the workbook is to efficiently transfer this technology from researchers at the U.S. Army Waterways Experiment Stations WES Coastal Engineering Research Center CERC to field office personnel. For this reason, complete documentation of the numerical model is required. Numerical model, Beach Change, Beach Fills, Simulation, Coastal Structures, Groins, Shoreline Evolution, Sand Transport, Breakwaters.
