  • Highly-resolved simulations of surf zone hydrodynamics driven by irregular waves using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics 

    Lowe, Ryan J.; Altomare, Corrado; Buckley, Mark L.; da Silva, Renan; Hansen, Jeff E.; Rijnsdorp, Dirk P.; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Crespo, Alejandro J.C. (Australasian Coasts and Ports Conference, 2021)

    As waves approach the steep slopes of reefs, plunging breaking usually occurs where the free surface overturns and violent water motion is triggered. Resolving such surf zone processes poses significant challenges for ...
  • Improving predictions of nearshore wave dynamics and coastal impacts using Smooth Particle Hydrodynamic models 

    Lowe, Ryan J.; Buckley, Mark L.; Altomare, Corrado; Rijnsdorp, Dirk P.; Suzuki, Tomohiro; Bricker, Jeremy (Australasian Coasts and Ports Conference, 2019)

    This paper proposes an optimization strategy that can be used in open-source hydrodynamic model to reduce the computational cost of simulations that aim to investigate the structural performance of port and coastal ...
  • An insightful tool for the response of armor block breakwaters on impermeable bed combining numerical modeling techniques 

    Tagliafierro, Bonaventura; Altomare, Corrado; Mitsui, Jun; Domínguez Alonso, José Manuel; Crespo, Alejandro J.C.; Gómez Gesteira, Moncho; Hernaez, Mario; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (International Society of Ocean and Polar Engineers (ISOPE), 2023)

    We aim to increase the efficiency of an open-source hydrodynamic model in investigating the structural performance of port infrastructure under high return period wave conditions, thus anticipating possible scenarios that ...
  • Simulation of a flexible fish farming net in currents and waves with DualSPHysics: maritime and naval architecture applications 

    González Ávalos, Raúl; Altomare, Corrado; Gironella Cobos, Xavier; Cabrera Crespo, Alejandro; Martinez Estevez, Ivan (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV), 2022)
    Conference report

    In high-energy sea states, the deformation of fish farming nets is a limiting factor in the design, therefore it is necessary to have adequate models of flexible nets. However, the standard industrial modelling software ...
  • SPH simulation of wave breaking over a barred beach and comparison with experiments 

    Scandura, Pietro; Altomare, Corrado; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Viccione, Giacomo; Van Der A, Dominic (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV), 2022)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents an SPH numerical simulation of the hydrodynamics due to monochromatic waves breaking on a rigid barred beach profile. The simulation is compared with large–scale laboratory experiments, in which detailed ...
  • Restoring and rehabilitation of historical coastal asset with SPH

    On January 20th, 2020, the storm Gloria caused the failure of the seaward platform and part of the footbridge of the Pont del Petroli pier at the beach of Badalona (Spain). A beam of about 15 m fell into the sea due to ...
  • Measurements and modeling of sediment transport during offshore and onshore bar migration 

    Grossmann, Florian; Hurther, David; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Alsina Torrent, José María (World Scientific, 2023)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Effective design of interventions in the coastal zone (flood defense, nourishments, etc.) requires understanding of long term coastal evolution. Historically, such evolution has been difficult to model because of different ...
  • Posidonia beach-cast and banquette: evaluation of sediment trapping and characterisation for coastal protection 

    Astudillo Gutiérrez, Carlos Salvador; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Sierra Pedrico, Juan Pablo; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín (World Scientific, 2023)
    Conference report

    The accumulation of Posidonia meadow remains is a recurrent phenomenon along the Catalan coast. As we move along the coastline from Barcelona towards the south, during autumn and winter the remains of Posidonia Oceanica ...
  • Nature based solutions for sediment starved deltas: the Ebro case in the Spanish Mediterranean coast 

    Sánchez-Arcilla Conejo, Agustín; Ibañez, Carles; Gracia Garcia, Vicente; Garrote De marcos, Luis Maria; Cáceres Rabionet, Iván; López Gómez, David; de la Peña Olivas, José Manuel; Caiola, Nuno; Munne, Antoni; Espanya Forcadell, Antoni; Iglesias Picazo, Ana; Rovira, Albert; González Marco, Daniel; Grassa Garrido, José María (World Scientific, 2023)

    Deltas in river regulated basins have become coastal vulnerability hotspots, for which traditional coastal engineering does not provide acceptable risk reductions. This is well illustrated by the Ebro delta (W Mediterranean) ...
  • SPH modelling of the interaction between a solitary wave and moving Tetrapods of a breakwater
