project The Jewel Island development, Bahrain client GIBB Abu Dhabi Ltd location Bahrain year 2003 Lulu Island is a reclaimed island just north of the Manama Corniche, Bahrain. It is planned to re- develop and extend the reclamations to create “The Jewel” residential marina complex with hotel, retail and leisure facilities. HR Wallingford was commissioned to assess wave disturbance levels and water circulation patterns around the proposed development. Incident wave conditions inshore of a number of shallow reefs were predicted in an earlier HR Wallingford study. The present study employed an ARTEMIS wave disturbance model to assess design and operational conditions around the Jewel development. The ARTEMIS model, which included processes of wave refraction, breaking, reﬂection and diffraction, identiﬁed possible areas of higher disturbance, the model at a number of locations, and their enabling the client to consider appropriate movement in the tidal ﬂow and dispersion mitigation options. tracked. Tracer concentrations were plotted at different times, as shown above, to assess the Tidal currents over the entire Bahrain Inlet were rate of dispersal. Flushing was assessed for modelled using TELEMAC-2D. Flow and tidal three possible layouts. residual ﬂow were predicted around the Jewel development. Flushing was assessed using the Finally, sedimentation issues connected with DKR3483 PDS028 KAD 0311 PLUME-RW model. Tracers were released into the development were reviewed.
