IRREGULAR-GRID FINITE-DIFFERENCE SIMULATION OF LAKE GENEVA SURGE

Combining the neat representation of boundary geometry by finite-element models with the advantage of fast numerical solution in finite-difference models, an irregular-grid finite-difference model is developed to solve the hydrodynamic equations for a homogeneous shallow lake. With a coarse irregular grid consisting of only 52 points the model is used to simulate storm surges on Lake Geneva during a sixty-hour episode of strong north-easterly winds. The simulation results are compared with the actual water level observations.
