SWIMS Laboratory Data


US Army Corps of Engineers - Jane Smith (P.O.C.)

Physical model studies were performed at a 1 to 50 model to prototype scale in a three-dimensional (3D) basin and a two-dimensional (2D) flume to measure wave transformation, setup, and runup on a generalized reef to improve understanding of the processes. Incident wave and water level conditions encompassed a range of combinations representative of the geographical locations where reefs are present.

The data report “Two- and Three-Dimensional Laboratory Studies of Wave Breaking, Dissipation, Setup, and Runup on Reefs" describes the test facilities, instruments, test conditions, and data obtained. A description of the 2D and 3D experiments and bottom bathymetry of each are given in the respective overview and bathymetry zip files. Reef roughness was varied for both the 2D- and 3D tests. Data obtained with each roughness is categorized as “Rough” or “Smooth”. Data are separated in zip files by water level, “low,” mid,” and “high”. The results consist of summary files, which include statistical results, and time series of the data. An additional data set was acquired in the 2D study in collaboration with the University of Florida (UF), and the data are located under the “UF” section. Additional tests were performed in the 3D basin with an angled channel cut into the reef and two ADVs placed on the model. These results are found under the “Channel” section.
