Storm-surge simulations: A quantitative comparison of some open-source shallow-water solvers

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractScientific

Abstract

Storm-surge simulations contribute key information to decisions with huge geographical coverage, future projection and socio-economical relevance. Available analytical solutions provide partial but exact benchmarks for unsteady wind-driven flows. These can be used as one means to verify the quality of numerical simulations of storm surges. This avenue is undertaken here with application to three open-source flow solvers for the shallow-water equations: AdCirc, D-Flow Flexible Mesh, and Telemac. This extended summary outlines the assumptions, potentialities and outcomes of verification exercises addressing storm-surge modelling skills.
