Computing Three-Dimensional Flexural-Gravity Water Waves Trichtchenko, Olga


The goal of this work is to build on previous results by Parau et al. [1, 2, 3, 4] and produce a more efficient and accurate method for computing solutions to Euler's equations for water waves underneath an ice sheet in three dimensions. As was previously done, we solve the equations via a numerically implemented boundary integral equations method and utilize some high performance computing techniques. In this talk, we give details of the current methods and compare solutions for different models of the ice sheet. This is a joint work with Emilian Parau, Jean-Marc Vanden-Broeck and Paul Milewski. <br/> <br/> References: <ol> <li> E. I. Parau, and J.-M.
