The goal of this internship is to implement an approach for taking into account the effects of wave breaking in a fully nonlinear and dispersive potential flow theory model (Raoult et al., 2017). This project is part of the France Energies Marines – ANR DiMe (Dimensionning and Meteocean : modeling and observations of extreme and breaking sea states for Marine Renewable Energy applications) project.
Description du poste
The principal objective of the DiMe project is to improve the description and prediction of extreme sea states and wave breaking properties for MRE applications, through advances in knowledge of the physical processes and the development of observational tools and numerical models. This work is being carried out in collaboration with a team of academic, public, and industrial partners composed of researchers and engineers specialized in the fields of numerical modeling, in situ observations, and laboratory experiments focused on sea states and MRE design.
This internship will be based on continuing the work of Papoutsellis et al. (2019), in particular by implementing and applying this approach to propagate waves over complex bathymetries. It will also focus on the implementation of an approach for taking into account wave run-up to simulate nearshore wave propagation.
