Coupling SPH with a 1-D Boussinesq-type wave model


The high computational cost of SPH remains problematic in dealing with wave propagation, especially when the domains considered are large. In order to overcome this difficulty, we propose to couple 2-D SPH with a 1-D Finite Difference Boussinesq-type model. The latter deals with wave propagations for most of the spatial domain, whereas SPH computations focus on the shoreline or close to off-shore structures, where a complex description of the free-surface is required. The re-use of existing codes is achieved using a generic implementation based on Component Technology. The communication between software is ensured by the middleware Component Template Library (CTL). In order to deal with open domains, open-boundaries have to be implemented for SPH, with water height and velocity varying in space and time. These velocity and water height values are then driven by the Boussinesq-type model. As an illustration of the one way coupling, we present herein two simple examples of water waves, the first one with a flat bottom, the other one representing a schematic coastal protection.
