Numerical Simulation of Shoreline Evolution Using A One Line Model

Unknown Jayakumar, R. Mahadevan


Two numerical schemes for the solution of a one-line model equation for shoreline evolution are reviewed. The inf1uence of the order of occurrence of the combination of ocean wave parameters, viz wave height, direction and period which do not follow a predictable pattern, on the shoreline evolution are studied. Case studies of shoreline evolution adjacent to Madras and Beypore harbours on the east and west coasts of India respectively are presented. Limitations of the one-line simulation model in predicting the shoreline evolution are indicated.
