Abstract:

A two-dimensional vertically-averaged finite element model was adapted to study the hydrodynamics of San Diego Bay. The hydrodynamic model was interfaced with pre- and post-processors to illustrate an integrated approach to modeling. Results of the hydrodynamic simulation were compared with observed data and with the results from a quasi-two dimensional hydrodynamic model. The model performed satisfactorily in predicting the velocity field and flow depths at specified locations in the bay.
