    Coupling between DualSPHysics and SWASH. Relaxation zone and graphical user interface

    The document represents the final report, after the third year of the 15_009 project on “Optimized hybrid model for coastal safety assessment”. This document integrates the previous two progress reports and shows that the main goal of the project has been achieved. The SPH-based DualSPHysics model is now capable of generating and absorbing sea waves, mimicking an experimental wave flume and this is achieved in two different ways: using moving boundaries and in a Relaxation Zone framework. The latter allows coupling with wave propagation models, such as SWASH. In this way, the computational cost is reduced whilst maintaining the accuracy of the solution. Finally a Graphical Users Interface has been developed for creating and running cases with DualSPHysics, also employing the Relaxation Zone technique.
