About this book

Major advances in modeling methods and the computing power required to make them viable have led to major breakthroughs in our ability to model water waves. Problems that were once intractable--such as modeling the 1958 Lituya Bay event--have now been solved. The time has come to incorporate into one resource the modern techniques and tools of water wave modeling--and who better to develop this resource than the man responsible for many of the field's most significant advances, Charles L. Mader.Numerical Modeling of Water Waves, Second Edition covers all aspects of the subject, from the basic fluid dynamics and the simplest models to the latest and most complex, including the first-ever description of using compressible Navier-Stokes techniques to model wave generation by explosions, projectile impacts, asteroids, and impact landslides. Tsunamis receive particular attention among the many examples presented, but the author also explores applications to underwater barriers and waves from cavities.T he book comes packaged with a CD-ROM that contains the computer codes and movies generated by the author and his colleagues at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Mader's three-pronged approach--through text, computer programs, and animations--imparts a thorough understanding of the new computational methods now at our disposal and provides the tools to put those methods to effective use.
