CIRP Technology-Transfer Workshop (#37)
August 19-21, 2011
Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina
San Diego, CA


In cooperation with

Conference on Coastal Engineering Practice:
Engineering Sustainable Coastal Development

The 37th Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP) Technology Transfer Workshop will be held August 19, 20, and 21, prior to the 2011 Conference on Coastal Engineering Practice. Workshop attendees will be provided PCs with pre-loaded software, a bound notebook with presentations, and a link to download all software and data sets prior to the conference. A temporary 60-day license* for the Surface-Water Modeling System (SMS) including the Coastal Modeling System (CMS), GenCade, and Particle Tracking Model (PTM) will be provided for applications after the workshop.

Coastal Modeling System (CMS)

Friday, August 19, 2011, 1:00 -5:00 p.m.
Saturday, August 20, 2011, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Sunday, August 21, 2011, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Please note that this is a 2 1/2 day course. On Sunday, registrants will have the option of staying with Coastal Modeling or attending one of the other Short Courses at no additional fee.

Instructors: Mitchell, Brown, Ashley Frey, Lihwa Lin, Honghai Li, Robert Thomas, Research Hydraulic Engineers, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, Engineering Research and Development Center, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The 37th Coastal Inlets Research Program (CIRP) Technology Transfer Workshop will be held August 19, 20, and 21, prior to the 2011 Conference on Coastal Engineering Practice. Workshop attendees will be provided PCs with pre-loaded software, a bound notebook with presentations, and a link to download all software and data sets prior to the conference. A temporary 60-day license* for the Surface-Water Modeling System (SMS) including the Coastal Modeling System (CMS), GenCade, and Particle Tracking Model (PTM) will be provided for applications after the workshop.

The workshop is organized as follows:

Friday, August 19, 1:00-5:00 p.m. Introduction to the Coastal Modeling System (CMS). (Beginners)

The CMS is an integrated wave, current, sediment transport, and morphology change system within the SMS interface. This half-day session is intended for new users of the CMS and SMS and will include an overview of the CMS bathymetry, creating wave and flow grids, set up with basic parameters, and simple hands-on examples with which participants can practice applying CMS.

Saturday, August 20, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Overview and Applications of GenCade. (Beginner thru Advanced)

GenCade is a regional shoreline and inlet evolution model available within the SMS. GenCade is a combination of the popular GENESIS shoreline change model together with Cascade, which incorporates regional geomorphology as well as exchange of sediment between the shorelines and inlet shoals and channels. The sessions are oriented for beginner GenCade users, discussing theory, applications, and several hands-on examples to practice concepts learned.

Sunday, August 21, 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. Coastal Modeling System Applications for Coastal Engineering Practice. (Intermediate level; must have taken Friday Introduction to CMS and SMS, or have prior CMS/SMS experience).

Applications of the CMS for coastal engineering analysis at Humboldt Bay, and Dana Point, California will be discussed, and additional hands-on data will be provided for practice. These engineering projects include advanced features such as telescoping grids, structure transmissibility, and CMS applications with the Particle Tracking Model (PTM). Each case study will include a brief overview of problems encountered, the calibration and validation process, and how forcing data were selected for simulations.
