The FUNWAVE-TVD Workshop 2018 was held at the University of Delaware, Newark, DE from 25–27 July 2018. This workshop was organized by the Center for Applied Coastal Research (CACR), University of Delaware and the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC). The workshop was open to all FUNWAVE users and interested parties. There were 44 participants from 10 countries in the workshop.
CACR started to organize the FUNWAVE-TVD Workshop from 2017. The workshop included hands-on training sessions for new users, as well as technical talks from the community of practicing and experienced users. The IT Research Computing group of the University of Delaware supported the training sessions by providing all participants with HPC accounts on the Mills cluster.
This year’s workshop focused on some new features added to the model recently, such as ship-wake generation, sediment transport, and model coupling and nesting framework. It also covered general topics, including the modeling of nearshore surface waves and processes such as harbor resonance, nearshore wave transformation, refraction and diffraction with complex geometries, nearshore circulation, and tsunami propagation and inundation from ocean basin- to nearshore-scales.
