Abstract: This paper deals with the numerical and experimental modeling of turbulent tidal flow and heat transfer in coastal water. A depth-averaged kturbulence mathematical model is used to present the numerical prediction. A full-field physical model with scale distortion, carried out in a specially designed laboratory with some necessary facilities for controlling the conditions, is described for simulating the turbulent tidal flow and heat transfer in coastal water. Field investigations and prototype measurements are concerned to provide the calibration and validation of the numerical prediction and experimental simulation. In the engineering application study, the modeling of turbulent heat transfer in coastal water near Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant is conducted.
