Abstrait: Background:

A very important aspect in the planning and design of a harbor is to determine the response of the harbor basin to incident waves. Many previous investigators have studied various aspects of the harbor resonance problem, though correct to a certain extent, have some disadvantages.

Objective:

To calculate wave response in an offshore or coastal harbor of arbitrary shape, this research develops a two-dimensional linear, inviscid, dispersive, hybrid finite element harbor resonance model using conservation of energy approach. Based on the mild-slope wave equation, the numerical model includes wave refraction, diffraction, and reflection. The model also incorporates the effects of variable bathymetry, bottom friction, variable, full or partial absorbing boundaries, and wave transmission through permeable breakwaters.

Methods:

Based on the mild-slope wave equation, the numerical model includes wave refraction, diffraction, and reflection. The model also incorporates the effects of variable bathymetry, bottom friction, variable, full or partial absorbing boundaries, and wave transmission through permeable breakwaters. The Galerkin finite element method is used to solve the functional which was obtained using the governing equations. This model solves both long-waves as well as short_wave problems. The accuracy and efficiency of the present model are verified by comparing different cases of rectangular harbor numerical results with analytical and experimental results.

Results:

There said results indicate that reduction in wave amplitude inside a harbor caused by energy dissipation due to water depth, linearly sloping bottom, and bottom friction is quite small for a deep harbor. But for a shallow harbor, these factors are critical. They also show that reduction in wave amplitude inside a harbor due to boundary absorption, permeable transmission, harbor entrance width, and horizontal dimensions.

Conclusion:

Those factors are very important for both deep and shallow harbors as proven by accurate agreement with the prediction of this numerical model. The model presented herein is a realistic method for solving harbor resonance problems.
