Unstructured grids

Development of optimal unstructured grids for the SWAN wave model. With Dr. L. Holthuijsen and Dr. M. Zijlema criteria have been developed to generate optimal grids based bathymetric depth and gradient information from the viewpoint of accuracy and computational requirements.

In this research activity collaborations have been established with Dr. V. Alari from Tallinn University, Estland to generate optimal grids in the Baltic Sea and in an archipelago sea in the Gulf of Botnia, and with Dr. A. Akpinar from Uludag University, Bursa, Turkey for wave prediction on the Black Sea.
