Bjarke Eltard Larsen, PhD is a Postdoc at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). He recently defended his Ph.D. titled “Tsunami-seabed interactions”. During the PhD he used computational fluid dynamics to study tsunami-induced scour around monopile foundations as well as boundary layer dynamics and bed shear stresses beneath shoaling, inundating and retreating tsunamis. He also has worked both numerically and experimentally on other scour aspects, involving wave, current and wave-plus-current scour and backfilling beneath submarine pipelines. Recently, he has started to focus on the accurate simulation of surf zone hydrodynamics and resulting sediment transport. Together with David R. Fuhrman he developed a formally stable RANS turbulence model for simulation of free-surface waves which has shown to give improved undertow prior to breaking.
