In this monograph, a finite difference algorithm for study-ing two dimensional wave breaking in the vertical plane isdeveloped. The essential feature of this algorithm is thecombination of the Volume-of-Fluid (VOF) technique for arbi-trary free surfaces and the k-E turbulence model. This me-thodology allows a self-contained study for wave transforma-tion processes in shallow water before, during and afterbreaking. This capability is illustrated in several calcula-tions.This book will be of interest for final year graduates,postgraduates and researchers working in the fields of tur-bulence modelling, wave hydrodynamics, coastal engineering,and oceanography of coastal regions.
