Seminar: Multiphase Flow Simulations of Impulse Waves Generated by Subaerial Granular Landslideshttps://hawaii.zoom.us/j/93596087383
Dr. Zhenhua Huang Associate Professor Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering University of Hawai'i at Mānoa Zoom Meeting Link: Meeting ID: 935 9608 7383 Passcode: OREseminar https://hawaii.zoom.us/j/93596087383 Sub-aerial granular landslides falling into lakes, reservoirs, or bays can generate larger impulse waves and cause adverse impacts on human lives in affected areas. The processes of granular landslides and impulse-wave generation are multiphase phenomena in nature, involving air, water and sediment. In this talk, a multiphase flow model to investigate such processes will be introduced and the effects of an erodible bed and grain size will be examined through numerical examples. Applications
Seminar: Flood and Erosion Hazard Mitigation for North Shore, O’ahuhttps://hawaii.zoom.us/j/93596087383
Jonathan Chapman, John Melve & Andrew Storey Graduate Students Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Zoom Meeting Link: Meeting ID: 935 9608 7383 Passcode: OREseminar https://hawaii.zoom.us/j/93596087383 The ORE 783 Capstone Design course invited detailed proposals from engineering students for FEL-1 and -2 level studies. The aim is to assess technical, economic, and regulatory feasibility of engineering measures that can reduce flood and erosion hazards on Oʻahu’s North Shore while taking into consideration climate change. We present three preliminary design solutions to mitigate three respective challenges experienced along
Seminar: The Resilient and Sustainable Engineering (RiSE) Team at Oceanit and Combatting Hawai’i Shoreline ErosionHolmes 247 2540 Dole Street, Honolulu, HI, United States
Dr. Michael Foley Senior Coastal Engineer, Principal Investigator, & Project Manager Resilient and Sustainable Engineering Team Oceanit Location Information: **this seminar will be held both in person (Holmes Hall 247) and over Zoom** Meeting ID: 960 4654 5799 Passcode: OREseminar https://hawaii.zoom.us/j/96046545799 Dr. Michael Foley is a senior coastal engineer, principal investigator, and project manager for the Resilient and Sustainable Engineering (RiSE) team at Oceanit. He has worked on a diverse range of projects including beach restoration, artificial reefs, shoreline erosion, harbor protection, flood risk evaluation/mitigation, and repair of coastal structures, drainage systems and reservoirs/dams. His practice aims to design and
MS Plan A Defense: Seasonal wave climate anomalies on the North Shore indicative of erosion conditionshttps://hawaii.zoom.us/j/98606638344
Andrew Storey Master’s Student Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Zoom Meeting Link Meeting ID: 986 0663 8344 Passcode: ORE https://hawaii.zoom.us/j/98606638344 Sea level rise and seasonal wave climate have beset the Sunset Beach shoreline community with several episodic erosion events that have impacted local infrastructure. In support of the local community, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Honolulu District has employed a series of remote sensing technologies at Sunset Beach to generate a regional sediment budget to better inform the community of their situation. The objective of this study is to explain the more
Seminar: Hilo Bay Improvement Project: Preliminary Designs, Construction Methods, Permitting, and Cost Estimates – Part IIWatanabe 112 2505 Correa Rd, Honolulu, HI, United States
Wyatt Burkley, Jon Chase, Gary Glass, Jesse Gray, Lauren Heslop, Kyle Pappas, Grant Peel, & Malia Selman ORE 783 Capstone Design Department of Ocean & Resources Engineering University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Location Information **This seminar will be held both in person (Watanabe Hall 112) and over Zoom** Meeting ID: 961 6222 2366 Passcode: OREseminar https://hawaii.zoom.us/j/96162222366 Students in the ORE 783 Capstone class have been working on the Hilo Bay Improvement Project. The purpose of the project is twofold: (1) to investigate the feasibility of adding an engineered breach or a wave energy converter into the Hilo breakwater to
Three-phase flow simulation of beach erosion induced by breaking tsunami-like wavesWatanabe 112 2505 Correa Rd, Honolulu, HI, United States
Shijie Huang, PhD Candidate Department of Ocean and Resources Engineering University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Location Information **This seminar will be held both in person (Watanabe Hall 112) and over Zoom** Meeting ID: 961 6222 2366 Passcode: OREseminar https://hawaii.zoom.us/j/96162222366 Devastating tsunami waves can mobilize a substantial amount of coastal sediments, causing significant morphological changes to the coastline. To understand the underlying hydrodynamics and sediment transport mechanisms associated with tsunami waves, a three-phase (air, water, and sediment) flow Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model based on OpenFOAM was used to simulate the beach erosion induced by breaking tsunami-like waves.
