Implementation of a Numerical Sea Model on a CRAY X-MP Series Computer
The modelling of three-dimensional sea regions, consists of the solution of a set of partial differential equations, subject to set of initial and boundary conditions, for fields which describe the hydrodynamics and other physical phenomena of interest, as functions of time. Numerical techniques consist of the usual transformations of a continuum description to a discrete description by: finite differences; finite elements; functional expansions; or some combination of these (e.g., Davies (1980)).
