Abstract

This paper presents a new modeling method for simulating nearshore waves. Waves in the process of moving to the nearshore are more complex than to the deep-sea. Nearshore wave modeling in addition to the need to consider gravity and wind effect, but also consider the impact of the seafloor topography. We construct the mathematical model of the seafloor topography. Then, the waveform data generate while constructing the seafloor topography data. Finally, we achieve real-time simulation of nearshore waves based on parametric surfaces. This experiment proved that this method can quickly realize simulation into the nearshore waves.
