Master Class OSM 2017: Coastal and Oceanic Resilience



Invitation for participation



Coastal and oceanic resilience by harnessing, simulating and observing Indonesian waters

Location: Laboratory for Harbor Infrastructure and Coastal Dynamics Technology, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Date: 17 (and 18) May 2017

Indonesian and Dutch Organizer:

Dr. Ruddy Kurnia, LabMath-Indonesia, Bandung, Indonesia

Dr. –Ing. Widyo Kongko, BTIPDP-BPPT, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Prof. dr. ir. E. (Brenny) van Groesen, University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands


The current Indonesian government policies focuses on the development of maritime technology and infrastructure to firm Indonesia as global maritime axis. That leads to increase significantly activities in the assessment, development and application of marine technology. For example, on going mega projects: Marine tol, Patimban Port, Masela Oil and Gas, Jakarta Port, NCICD/Reclamation of Jakarta Bay, etc..  This master class shares recent developments in the coastal and ocean engineering applications.

In various collaboration projects as part of the scientific collaboration between Indonesia and The Netherlands supported by SPIN in the past, much attention was given to basic science topics like Applied Math, Optics, and Fluid mechanics.

As one result of these activities was the establishment of LabMath-Indonesia, an independent research institute in Bandung, where since various years the emphasis is to develop mathematical models to simulate and observe waves along the coasts and in deep water.

From the start on there has been collaboration with the Indonesian Hydrodynamic Laboratory (now called Balai Teknologi Hidrodinamika) in Surabaya, where a world class laboratory started to operate in the early 90’s, aimed for experiments on ships. A similar high class laboratory for coastal applications (Balai Teknologi Infrastruktur Pelabuhan dan Dinamika Pantai (BTIPDP-BPPT)) is situated at the campus of UGM in Yogyakarta; this laboratory will be the host for the master class.

Contents Master Class and goal

The intention of the master class is to let students and other interested people get acquainted with the current exciting problems that are still to be solved in the area of ocean and coastal engineering.

The Coastal laboratory will show the facilities and given an overview, and present some specialized lectures to highlight the activities. In this context, the best practices, application and theories, in the numerical model will also be presented and discussed.

LabMath-Indonesia will in particular introduce the so-called HAWASSI-software that has been developed in the past years. The software can simulate waves in harbours to assist in design, construction and dredging; this could support the Indonesian development of transport of people and goods, marine-energy systems and near-coast oil and gas activities. But also for simulations in deep water to support the disclosure of East Indonesia, where ocean waves are much higher and mooring is more difficult. The software is also used to improve (distorted) radar images to observe and predict dynamic phase-resolved waves from a ship or coastline.


In the first day of the master class, lectures will illustrate the challenges and the relevance of coastal and oceanic activities. During an optional second day the participants may be introduced into the use of the HAWASSI software from given test cases, but may also set-up their own desired wave/structure problem.
