Interactions between waves and breakwaters (2)

The Maritime Engineering Division University of Salerno (MEDUS) has developed a CAD/CFD procedure to analyze the interactions between waves and breakwaters (submerged or emerged). In the numerical simulations the motion of the fluid within the interstices is simulated by integrating the RANS equations inside the voids. The breakwaters are thus modelled by overlapping three-dimensional elements (AccropodeTM, Core-locTM, Xbloc®, Stones), one by one, just as it happens in the full size construction or in physical laboratory tests.

This web site was launched by Prof. Michele Mossa of the Polytechnic University of Bari (Italy) with the initial support of Fondazione Caripuglia, Bari, Italy for the Research Project LIC-MON of 2003 and of the Project IMCA (Integrated Monitoring of Coastal Areas) financed by MIUR PON D.M. 593/00. Later, the initiative was supported with other Prof. Michele Mossa’s funds, most recently provided by the RITMARE Project.
