About this book

This book is a collection of extended papers based on presentations given during the ICEC 2018 conference, held in Caen, France, in August 2018. It explores both the limitations and advantages of current models, and highlights the latest developments concerning new numerical schemes, high-performance computing, multi-physics and multi-scale methods, and better interaction with field or scale model data. Accordingly, it addresses the interests of practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, and engineers active in this field. 

About the authors

Kim Dan Ngyuyen is a Professor of Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Engineering at the Laboratory for Hydraulics Saint-Venant, University of Paris-Est, and the Executive Director of the GIS Hydraulics for Environment and Sustainable Development (GIS HEDD). His areas of specialization are computational fluid dynamics, shallow-water and coastal flows, sediment transport, flood control decision support systems, and integrated water resources management.

Sylvain Guillou is a Professor of Fluid Mechanics at the University of Caen Normandy, France. His areas of research specialization are fluid mechanics, turbulence, sediment transport, marine renewable energy, computational fluid dynamics, and coastal/estuarine flows.

Hocine Oumeraci is an Emeritus Professor of Hydromechanics & Coastal Engineering at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, where he served until his retirement in 2017. His areas of specialization are hydromechanics, coastal engineering, processes, sediment transport and coastal morphodynamics, flood defence against extreme storm surges/tsunamis, physical and conceptual modelling, and reliability and risk-based design/analysis.

Philippe Gourbesville is a Professor of Hydroinformatics and Water Engineering at the Nice Sophia University, France, and the Director of Polytech Nice Sophia. His research and teaching interests are mainly focused on urban water management, urban flooding processes, distributed physically based modelling, impact assessment, integrated water resources management, ICT & architecture of modelling systems, collaborative engineering, and virtual environments.

Jérôme Thiébot is an Associate Professor of Fluid Mechanics at the LUSAC/ESIX, University of Caen Normandy, France. His research specializations are in understanding estuarine/coastal flows, numerical modelling, marine renewable energies, sediment transport, and coastal risks.
