Numerical simulation of non-linear wave interaction with an offshore wind turbine foundation

Abstract:

This paper presents a novel numerical method for non-linear water wave interaction with a vertical structure of arbitrary horizontal shape. The wave motion is described by a set of non-linear Boussinesq-type equations. These are solved numerically using a Godunov-type finite volume method on Cartesian grids with cut cells. The higher-order dispersive Boussinesq terms are approximated by finite differences. The main advantage of this approach is that not only is the proposed scheme conservativ...
