Numerical Study of the Characteristics of Wave-Wave Interactions in Multiphase Wave Field Near Coastal Area
Numerical investigations of multiphase irregular wave field are presented by using the BEM, which incorporates the interaction between incoming wave and reflected wave in the coastal area. This study discusses the case of multi-component wave generation using the 2D-NWT, which incorporates the wave-wave interactions between various conditions of incoming waves and high frequency reflected waves, including the variation of wave field and particle trajectory. The surf beats in the surf zone is mainly the cause of the cross-shore motion, and the generations of high frequency harmonics waves, these phenomena will be study accordingly in this preliminary study for the modeling of oscillations cause by surf beat and back swash, the generation of high frequency multi-phase reflected wave are carried out to investigate the deformation of wave profile, wave field and particle path-line.
