PARAMETERS AFFECTING THE PERFORMANCE OF WETTING AND DRYING IN A TWO-DIMENSIONAL FINITE ELEMENT LONG WAVE HYDRODYNAMIC MODEL

The marsh porosity method, a type of thin slot wetting and drying algorithm in a 2-D finite element long wave hydrodynamic model, is discussed and analyzed to assess model performance. Tests, including comparisons to simple examples and theoretical calculations, examine the effects of varying the marsh porosity parameters. The findings demonstrate that the wetting and drying concept of marsh porosity, often used in finite element hydrodynamic modeling, can behave in a more complex manner than initially expected.
