What is WISPP?
The numerical model WISPP (Wave Induced Stresses and Pore Pressures) is a hybrid Finite Element – Analytical Model developed to simulate
the time and spatially dependent stresses, pore pressures and soil displacements in a seabed when subject to sinusoidal wave loading.
The model simulates a sinusoidal wave loading on a seabed soil of finite thickness, with the vertical domain discretized in to 300 elements.
The variability in the direction of wave travel, and the variability with time is simulated using analytical methods using complex number
mathematics, i.e. real and imaginary conditions.
