Thesis Topic/Title
Modelling of Wind-Generated Waves

Description

Maintaining a reliable water supply will continue to be a problem that faces society. One of the obstacles that needs to be addressed is the evaporation from water storages. A number of phenomena influence the evaporation rate; this project will focus on the generation of waves due to wind. This process accelerates evaporation by increasing the surface area of the water as well as mixing the surface layer of water with deeper water. This project will involve very accurate simulation of the water’s surface under wind conditions to measure the behaviour.
