Abstract

A FINITE DIFFERENCE MODEL FOR TIME-DEPENDENT, WAVE-INDUCED NEARSHORE CIRCULATION HAS BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH INCLUDES WAVE REFRACTION, WAVE-CURRENT INTERACTION, WAVE SETUP, WIND EFFECTS AND COASTAL FLOODING.RESULTS ARE SHOWN FOR SET-UP IN WAVE TANKS DUE TO STEADY WAVES AND WAVE GROUPS, AND ALSO FOR A LONGSHORE PERIODIC BEACH.IMPORTANT RESULTS ARE THAT TUNED WAVE GROUPS CAN INCITE SEICHING IN ENCLOSED BASINS AND HARBORS AND THAT RIP CURRENTS WILL BE INDUCED OR MAINTAINED BY THE PRESENCE OF SURF ZONE CHANNELS.(A).
