Abstract: This paper demonstrates the application of the one-dimensional shallow-water equation model DYNLETI at Brunswick Harbor, Georgia to simulate storm-induced velocities precisely at a bridge pier. A simple stochastic procedure to estimate frequency-indexed currents due to tropical storm-tide events is also presented.DYNLETI results are compared with field data for normal tide conditions. The model is then used to compute storm-induced currents and probability exceedance curves are constructed.
