Finite element and experimental analyses of unsteady hydrodynamic flows in lakes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We present a numerical result in finite element analysis of flows in the water environment. We also present a result that we obtained experimentally utilizing the global positioning system (GPS). We show how the numerical result can be incorporated in analysis to simulate the experimental result. We describe our technique with an example in which an unsteady flow generated in Kojima Lake was analyzed numerically and experimentally.
