Modeling Applications in Coastal Engineeringby Robert Battalio, Moffatt & Nichol Engineers, Long, Beach, CA, USA,

Abstract: This paper discusses physical and numerical models of coastal processes as applied to coastal and ocean engineering projects. Some of the concepts and principles of modelling are identified and briefly discussed. Four case studies of modelling applications in which the authors were directly involved are presented to illustrate how physical and numerical models have been used in coastal and ocean engineering. For each case study, the benefits derived from model application are identified. Also, specific aspects of each model application are highlighted to elaborate on modelling concepts and principles. Two case studies of both physical and numerical models are provided.
