Modelling of extreme ocean waves


The project aims at modelling and predicting of extreme waves in the ocean.

Research Location

Civil Engineering

Program Type



Nonlinearity plays an important role in the propagation of ocean waves. It is responsible for the emergence of rogue waves in deep and dispersive shock waves in shallow water. Both projects require performing a series of laboratory experiments and to gain novel fundamental insights with respect to the nonlinear water wave propagation for the specific problem and to validate the results with theory as well as state of the art numerical tools.
