    • A hybrid numerical model for coastal engineering problems 

      Altomare, Corrado; Suzuki, T.; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Crespo, Alejandro J.C.; Gómez Gesteira, Moncho; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván (2014)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The implementation and first validation of a hybridization technique between a NLSWE model and a meshless fully Navier-Stokes equation-based model are presented. The scope is to overcome the limitations of each numerical ...
    • An inter-model comparison for wave interactions with sea dikes on shallow foreshores 

      Gruwez, Vincent; Altomare, Corrado; Suzuki, T.; Streicher, Maximilian; Cappietti, Lorenzo; Kortenhaus, Andreas; Troch, Peter (MDPI, 2020-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      Three open source wave models are applied in 2DV to reproduce a large-scale wave flume experiment of bichromatic wave transformations over a steep-sloped dike with a mildly-sloped and very shallow foreshore: (i) the ...
    • Benchmarking of numerical models for wave overtopping at dikes with shallow mildly sloping foreshores: Accuracy versus speed 

      Lashley, Chris H.; Zanuttigh, Barbara; Bricker, Jeremy; Van der Meer, Jentsje; Altomare, Corrado; Suzuki, T.; Roeber, Volker; Oosterlo, Patrick (Elsevier, 2020-08-01)

      Practitioners often employ diverse, though not always thoroughly validated, numerical models to directly or indirectly estimate wave overtopping (q) at sloping structures. These models, broadly classified as either phase- ...
    • Characterization of overtopping waves on sea dikes with gentle and shallow foreshores 

      Suzuki, T.; Altomare, Corrado; Yasuda, Tomohiro; Verwaest, Toon (MDPI, 2020-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      Due to ongoing climate change, overtopping risk is increasing. In order to have effective countermeasures, it is useful to understand overtopping processes in details. In this study overtopping flow on a dike with gentle ...
    • 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 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
      Open Access
      In this study we investigated the capabilities of the mesh-free, Lagrangian particle method (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics, SPH) to simulate the detailed hydrodynamic processes generated by both spilling and plunging ...
    • Overtopping metrics and coastal safety: a case of study from the Catalan coast 

      Altomare, Corrado; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Suzuki, T.; Viccione, Giacomo; Saponieri, Alessandra (MDPI, 2020-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      Design criteria for coastal defenses exposed to wave overtopping are usually assessed by mean overtopping discharges and maximum individual overtopping volumes. However, it is often difficult to give clear and precise ...
    • Tilted black-Si: ~0.45 form-birefringence from sub-wavelength needles 

      Gailevicius, Darius; Suzuki, T.; Staliunas, Kestutis (2020-05-25)
      Article
      Open Access
      The self-organised conical needles produced by plasma etching of silicon (Si), known as black silicon (b-Si), create a form-birefringent surface texture when etching of Si orientated at angles of ¿i¿<¿50¿-¿70° (angle between ...
    • Validation of RANS modelling for wave interactions with sea dikes on shallow foreshores using a large-scale experimental dataset 

      Gruwez, Vincent; Altomare, Corrado; Suzuki, T.; Streicher, Maximilian; Cappietti, Lorenzo; Kortenhaus, Andreas; Troch, Peter (MDPI, 2020-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      In this paper, a Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes (RANS) equations solver, interFoam of OpenFOAM®, is validated for wave interactions with a dike, including a promenade and vertical wall, on a shallow foreshore. Such a ...
