Abstract


Wave evolution near an island is simulated using SWAN model. Comparisons of the wave heights and wave spectra between simulation and observation are carried out, in which a significant agreement between them can be observed. In this paper, SWAN numerical model proves to simulate wave evolution well over sharp topography in South China Sea, and this study can provide basic data for engineering construction.
