Abstract

This paper presents the details of a Q3D numerical model and the preliminary results of its application to the coast in Norfolk, UK, with presence of 9 shore-parallel breakwaters. The intra-wave period model results were also compared with the measurements of an x-band radar installed at the site. The model results agree well qualitatively with the field observations. The impact of tides on the wave patterns high and low tidal levels is also presented.
