Abstract
    The eddy patterns in the harbour of Zeebrugge are studied using TELEMAC-3D and compared to available measurement data. It was found that during flood a clockwise eddy exists, generated by a strong jet near the eastern side of the harbour entrance. This eddy generates a second counterclockwise eddy, which persists in the harbour during the ebb phase, whereas the primary eddy disappears. A sensitivity study was performed to investigate the influence of the turbulence model, the bed roughness and the advection scheme. It appeared that the modelled eddy patterns are quite sensitive to the settings that are used for all these three parameters.
