AICOE 417: Applied informatics in coastal engineering

Lecture notes

Lecture notes in Vietnamese featuring the following main topics:

  • Introduction to spectral wave modelling
  • Modelling domain extent
  • Grid generation
  • Specification of model boundaries
  • Parameter selection
  • Output extraction


The student have an opportunity to practice building a numerical model to simulate wave propagation to a local site on the Vietnamese northern coast. The coastline is straight and the seabed contours are almost parallel. The coastal site and depth samples can be downloaded here.
