Adaptive boundary-type finite element method for wave diffraction-refraction in harbors. (English) Zbl 0845.76042
Summary: This paper presents an adaptive boundary-type finite element method for wave diffraction-refraction in harbors. The present method consists of three parts: the automatic mesh generation method, the boundary type finite element method, and the adaptive remeshing method. The model is based on the mild-slope equation, and an arbitrary reflection condition is introduced. The computed results are compared with existing analytical and experimental results.
