Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPublished conference contribution


The applicability of a Boussinesq-type wave model has been tested for cases of regular wave propagation in one horizontal dimension. The model (Chondros and Memos, 2012) is able to simulate wave propagation from deep through to shallow waters. Here an expansion is included, based on Metallinos and Memos (2012), coupling the main solver with a nonlinear Darcy-Forchheimer equation to cope with the interaction of waves and permeable submerged structures. Results for wave propagation over a permeable steep bar indicated a better behaviour of the model than when an impermeable one is present.
