Abstract:Mathematical models have been used for several years to simulate large scale tidal flows in the coastal environment. As computer resources improve with the introduction of relatively cheap but very fast modern computers, the representation of the physical processes in the models can be improved and the scope of the models can be increased. This becomes most meaningful as the spatial resolution of the models is also able to be improved by using the power of the modern new computers. This report is not intended as a review of current turbulence models; rather it presents an assessment of the usefulness of present day turbulence models in improving the accuracy and reliability of one type of mean flow model to simulate tidal flows in the coastal environment.
