Provides within one resource all of the recent advances in the modeling of water waves Presents methods for producing the first examples of realistically modeling water wave generation by processes involving shock waves and compressible flow Describes the author's breakthrough numerical modeling of the 1958 tsunami wave at Lituya Bay and the interaction of the Chicxulub asteroid with the ocean and ocean floor 60 million years ago Includes a CD-ROM containing FORTRAN codes for water wave modeling, animations of reactive hydrodynamic flow, tsunami wave generation, propagation, and flooding, and PowerPoint presentations

Table of Contents
Numerical Modeling of Water Waves, Second Edition covers all aspects of this subject, from the basic fluid dynamics and the simplest models to the latest and most complex, including the first-ever description of techniques for modeling wave generation by explosions, projectile impacts, asteroids, and impact landslides. The book comes packaged with a CD-ROM that contains the computer codes and movies generated by the author and his colleagues at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Mader's three-pronged approachthrough text, computer programs, and animationsimparts a thorough understanding of new computational methods and provides the tools to put those methods to effective use.
