The Westerschelde estuary is located in the SW of the Netherlands. It is an economically important area because it is the main entrance to the port of Antwerp. Currents are strong in this area, so they are Included in the simulation.
The boundary condition for the outer area is taken from station EUR.
Outer area generates nested boundary condition
for regular inner grid, and for curvilinear
The Input files are taken from the ONR test bed (see Ris et al., 2002). The computational resolution is lower here than in the ONR test bed.
The overall geographic situation is shown in plot F02d.jpg (obtained from output file F02d.ps). The curvilinear grid is shown in plot F02c.plt.
Spectra at 8 locations are Compared with measurements in plot F02.plt.
4 cases are considered:
