Abstract
The study of dynamic interaction between waves and coastal protection structure play a vital role in the establishment of coastal structures. It also plays a key role for the coastal environment and its management. The present study is focused on the analysis of waves and its energy spectrum at the location or near to the interacted sea walls along the coastal regions of Puducherry. Numerical modeling study is very essential to understand the wave characteristics along the coastal regions. In the present study numerical SWAN model is used to understand the local effects and large scale effects on the Puducherry coast. For this a detailed study has been conducted for the period 2013 using ECMWF wind in SWAN model. The model derived results shows the wave height is maximum during North East monsoon season compared to all other seasons. The variation of wave spectrum is observed that during Northeast monsoon season, the energy density reaches maximum of 1200 kg/s to 2400 kg/s at 0.2 to 0.3 Hz of frequency. The Energy transport during North East monsoon season is 1000 m3 kg/s2 and during South West monsoon season is 200 m3 kg/s2 and 500 m3 kg/s2 in rest of the year. Wave energy interaction along the seawall structure during North east monsoon season is observed to be higher compared to other seasons. So the seawall is more prone to damages during this season.

Key words: Wave spectrum, ECMWF, SWAN model, Stimulated waves, Energy density
