The purpose of this study is to model the region of New York in D-Flow Flexible Mesh, and using the flexible mesh grid to more accurately model inland areas, which would need a smaller grid size. However, one of the requirements is a reasonable computation time, which means that it should not take more than a few hours to model a month of hydrodynamics. The goal of this internship was to finally simulate hurricane Sandy in the developed D-Flow FM model. However, during the relative short internship it was decided to first focus on a tide analysis before modeling the hurricane. The model was set up and a tide analysis was performed. In the last weeks hurricane Sandy was also simulated, but not much research was done on that, just to show that it works.
