Due to the growth in cheap computing power, over the last decade the numerical modelling of wave structure interaction has entered a new phase. Increasingly sophisticated mathematical models now allow for the most realistic modelling of fluid structure interaction to date. Advanced Numerical Modelling of Wave Structure Interaction contains contributions from a wide range of experts in the field of numerical modelling for coastal engineering. Chapters present state-of-the-art numerical approaches, ranging from wave-breakwater interaction to the effect of vegetation on currents.
