### ISEC Community Workshop:

Benchmark Problems

Discussion group about Benchmarks Challenge

Submitting your benchmark solution

Benchmark #1

Benchmark #2

**Two benchmark problems have been prepared for this workshop**.
The first is a simple beach-only setup for which physical data are
provided as part of the benchmark information. The second includes
an island feature, and is being conducted as a "blind benchmark"
(physical data to be collected separately, prior to the workshop).

This experiment has a single solitary wave propagating up a
triangular shaped shelf. Free surface information was recorded
via resistance-type wave gauges and sonic wave gages. Velocity
information was recorded via ADV's. For a brief review of the
experiments, see the short

presentation.
A

complete description of the experiments
and data is also provided. A zipfile is available of the various

data provided for the benchmark exercise.
The filenames correspond to the Figure numbers in this webpage.

For this benchmark, we will compare free surface, velocity, and
turbulence information recorded throughout the basin.

*Setup*

Water depth at Wavemaker: 0.78m

Solitary wave height at wavemaker: 0.39m

Bathymetry: Can be found in the figure below. Scatterset data in
TWB 071708_5CM_XYZ_METERS.txt, all in meters. The Figure below
(which includes the bathymetry data) can be plotted in Matlab with the
plot_bathy.m script.

*Free Surface Elevation Measurements*

Recorded at y=0 (centerline of basis) at various x locations on the shelf.
Figure below can be created in Matlab, with the WG_along_Y_0.m script
(vertical axis units in cm)

Recorded at y=-5 at various x locations on the shelf.
Figure below can be created in Matlab, with the WG_along_Y_5.m script
(vertical axis units in cm)

Recorded at y=25 at various y locations.
Figure below can be created in Matlab, with the usWGs_at_X_25m.m script
(vertical axis units in cm)

*Velocity and Turbulence Measurements*

Recorded at x=13m, y=0m, z=0.75 m (3 cm from still water level)
Figure below can be created in Matlab, with the ADV_x13m_y0m_z075cm.m
script (vertical axis units in cm/s)

Recorded @ x=21m, y=0m, z=0.77 m (1 cm from still water level)
Figure below can be created in Matlab, with the
ADV_ x21m_y0m_z077cm.m script (vertical axis units in cm/s)

Recorded @ x=21m, y=-5m, z=0.77 m (1 cm from still water level)
Figure below can be created in Matlab, with the ADV_x21m_y5m_z077cm.m
script (vertical axis units in cm/s)
