Numerical Modeling

MRD Associates, Inc. has modeled wave characteristics, shoreline change, sediment transport and inlet, bay and estuarine hydrodynamics in the study, planning, monitoring, and design of coastal and marina projects. Calibrated numerical models and empirical models are tools to assist the engineers and scientists in documenting existing conditions and predicting potential changes from proposed activities. MRD’s engineers also have considerable experience with the Hydrologic Engineering Center models developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
