Abstract

In this work, the 2DH post-Boussinesq model of Karambas and Memos (2009) is tested in the generation and propagation of tsunami and ship-borne waves. Model results compare well with analytical solutions and physical experiments presented by Hammack (1973), Mitsotakis (2009) and David et al. (2017), highlighting the model's accuracy and versatility.
