Surface Roller Model in CMS - UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Governing Equation

The surface roller model is simulated as

   \frac{\partial ( c S_r  \cos \theta ) }{\partial x }+\frac{\partial ( c S_r  \sin \theta ) }{\partial y } = -D_r + f_e D_w (1)

where  S_r is the roller energy,  c =\sqrt{g h } are the roller propagation velocities, D_r is the roller dissipation, D_w is the wave dissipation (from CMS-Wave), and f_e is an efficiency factor between 0 and 1 (default 1) which determines how much wave energy dissipation that goes into the roller.
