To investigate wave-current interaction, coupled modeling system including GETM and SWAN models using MCT toolkit has been developed as first part of my fellowship. To this end both 3D radiation stress method (Mellor,2003,2008,2011) and Vortex force (VF) approach (Ardhuin,2008) have been implemented. Both methods are be able to use physical component in between e.g. rollers evolution model, wave generated turbulence, bottom boundary layer and so on.
Hereafter results of VF method for two different test cases for a specific set of parameters such as inclusion of wave generated turbulence using k-epsilon turbulence scheme, assuming 50 percent of broken waves turn to roller and … have been presented.
