Abstract:

The purpose of this Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN is to demonstrate the use of BOUSS-2D in three example applications. The BOUSS-2D is a Boussinesq wave model t at is now part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE Surface-Water Modeling System SMS. Demirbilek et al. 2004 gives a detailed description of the SMS interface of BOUSS-2D. This second technical note in BOUSS-2D series is a step-by-step tutorial that shows the usage of the model through illustrative examples. The next CHETN in the series will describe the time-series and frequency-domain analysis utilities and techniques developed for post-processing BOUSS-2D model results. Details of the BOUSS-2D model theory, numerical implementation, and example applications are presented in a technical report Nwogu and Demirbilek 2001.
