Coastal and port engineers rely on four complimentary tools for the development of robust, functioning projects: theoretical analyses, numerical .. Read more modeling, physical modeling, and field measurements. From the early days of coastal and port engineering physical modeling (including laboratory experimentation) has played a major role in advancing understanding and in effective design and construction. This webinar, hosted by the National Committee Coastal and Ocean Engineering, PIANC Australia and New Zealand, and Engineers Australia, will examine the role of physical modeling in today’s world with a look toward the future. After a short introduction describing the underlying principles of physical modeling, typical modern-day model uses will be discussed, along with specific examples of how physical models contributed to successful projects. We will explore current worldwide trends in physical modeling that illustrate the continued importance of this engineering tool. From there, we will step back from physical modeling and share opinions on several challenges faced by coastal and port engineers now and in the future. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
