      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The open-source code DualSPHysics is used in this work to compute the wave run-up in an existing dike in the Chinese coast using realistic dimensions, bathymetry and wave conditions. The GPU computing power of DualSPHysics ...
    • DualSPHysics: an open-source code for engineering purposes 

      Rogers, Benedict D.; Fourtakas, Georgios; Stansby, Peter K.; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Crespo, Alejandro J.C.; Gómez Gesteira, Moncho; García-Feal, Orlando; González-Cao, José; Birjukovs Canelas, Ricardo; Vacondio, Renato; Altomare, Corrado; Tafuni, Angelantonio (2020)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The DualSPHysics project is an open-source smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) code for simulating free-surface flow. The DualSPHysics code can be run on both multi-core central processing units (CPUs) or on a graphics ...
    • DURCWAVE ‘amending the Design criteria of URban defences in LECZs through Composite-modelling of WAVE overtopping under climate change scenarios’ 

      Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Altomare, Corrado (2020-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The main scientific objective of DURCWAVE project is to define new design criteria for wave action by modelling wave overtopping and post-overtopping processes of these urban defences.
    • Improved accuracy in modelling armoured breakwaters with SPH 

      Altomare, Corrado; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Crespo, Alejandro J.C.; Domínguez, Jose M.; Gómez-Gesteira, Moncho; Rogers, Benedict D. (2012)
      Conference lecture
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The present paper reports the added-value of using SPH in the fluid-structure interaction occurring in the run-up and overtopping phenomena for a the rubble mound breakwater, where the seaward layer is made of grooved cubic ...
    • Influence of convex and concave curvatures in a coastal dike line on wave run-up 

      Subramaniam, Suba Periyal; Scheres, Babette; Schilling, Malte; Liebisch, Sven; kerpen, Nils B.; Schlurmann, Torstern; Altomare, Corrado; Schüttrumpf, Holger (2019-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      Due to climatic change and the increased usage of coastal areas, there is an increasing risk of dike failures along the coasts worldwide. Wave run-up plays a key role in the planning and design of a coastal structure. ...
    • Influence of directional spreading on wave overtopping of sea dikes with gentle and shallow foreshores 

      Altomare, Corrado; Suzuki, T.; Verwaest, Toon (2020-04)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The work highlights the importance of directional spreading effects on wave overtopping estimation in shallow and mild sloping foreshores. Wave short-crestedness leads, in general, to a reduction of mean overtopping ...
    • Numerical modelling of coastal defences using the smoothed particle hydrodynamic method 

      Crespo, Alejandro; Altomare, Corrado; Rogers, Benedict D.; Dominguez, Jose; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (2013)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The present paper reports the results of the application of the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method to model the wave run-up over an armour breakwater. The units that form the outer layer of the structure have ...
    • Numerical simulations of surf zone wave dynamics using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics 

      Lowe, Ryan J.; Buckley, Mark L.; Altomare, Corrado; Rijnsdorp, Dirk; Yao, Yu; Suzuki, T.; Bricker, Jeremy (2019-12)
      Article

      Altomare, Corrado; Damiani, Leonardo; Gironella Cobos, Xavier (2011)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The semi-empirical methods are useful tools to understand the wave overtopping phenomena, but uncertainty remains on their applicability. It’s necessary to carry out campaign surveys or laboratory tests to support them. ...
