Research into practice
HR Wallingford has developed a new software package to help our coastal engineers design stable artificial beaches.
There has been an increased demand for large new marine terminals, often requiring offshore island breakwaters which are well suited to caisson construction.
The effective management of estuarine locations requires a sound scientific basis for applied models of fine sediment dynamics.
The CFD software package ANSYS CFX is widely used at HR Wallingford for 3D numerical simulations. We carried out a study into the simulation of air pocket transport in pipes.
This preliminary study was carried out to ensure confidence in the performance of CFX in simulating wave, current and combined wave and current boundary layers
We carried out a research study to examine the partial transmission of wave energy through (or over) structures and the simulation of transmissive structures within the numerical model, ARTEMIS.
The simulations of wave-driven currents and computation of sediment transport patterns and morphodynamics using the PISCES models are generally based on the TOMAWAC wave model.
