Abstract

This paper presents a unified numerical model for the bottom boundary layer and the upper layer in the surf zone. The model is based on the 2-DV Reynolds equations for turbulent flows with free surface boundary. At each time step of computation, the numerical mesh generated for the physical domain is obtained by applying an algebraic mapping technique, in which grid points are clustered close to the sea bed to resolve the high velocity gradients expected in the bottom boundary layer.
