Wave modelling and hydraulic engineering

+31(0)88335 8426


Dr. Jacco Groeneweg is an expert in the field of wave modelling and hydraulic engineering. The experience is based on 20 years of research, consultancy and educational activities.

Highlights are investigation on the mechanisms involved in the interaction between waves and currents, in a formalism adapted for Deltares’ Delft3D-FLOW module and the on-going development of the spectral wave model SWAN and of the Boussinesq-type wave model TRITON. The results of the research have been published and presented at several national and international conferences and workshops and in international scientific journals and proceedings.

Since the foundation of Deltares, Groeneweg is project leader of a number of comprehensive, large-scale projects, most of them commissioned by Dutch governmental agencies.
