Cursusdoelen
After completion of the course, the student
  1. has in-depth knowledge about both the qualitative and quantitative modelling aspects of tidal forces (constituents, equilibrium tide);
  2. is able to give a full quantitative and physical description of tidal waves in channels and in semi-enclosed basins;
  3. has in-depth knowledge of the equations of motion that govern wind waves, understands the differences with the equations that govern long waves, and knows how to compute and interpret the characteristics of free waves governed by these equations;
  4. has in-depth knowledge of the equations of motion that govern wind waves, understands the differences with the equations that govern long waves, and knows how to compute and interpret the characteristics of free waves governed by these equations;
  5. is acquainted with with the basic principles of wave-current interaction and wave-wave interactions;
  6. knows the main models and mechanisms that describe the generation of waves by wind, and is able to find solutions of these models;
  7. is acquainted and can work with the basic concepts of random waves, and knows how these concepts are implemented in modern wave prediction models.
Inhoud
