 r7583 """ANUGA simulation of simple rip current. Source: Reference to paper in here Source: Geometry and wave properties loosely based on those presented in OBSERVATIONS OF LABORATORY RIP CURRENTS by Brian K. Sapp, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering Georgia Institute of Technology May 2006 I will need to make a version which has the exact same geometry as the Georgia Tech wavetank if we wish to use a comparison to the results of this study as ANUGA validation as i played with the geometry somewhat as i completed this model.
