This paper is devoted to the numerical simulation of wave breaking. It presents the results of a numerical workshop that was held during the conference LOMA04. The objective is to compare several mathematical models (compressible or incompressible) and associated numerical methods to compute the flow field during a wave breaking over a reef. The methods(More)
The scope of this work is to present and discuss the results obtained from simulating three-dimensional plunging breaking waves by solving the Navier-Stokes equations, in air and water, coupled with a dynamic subgrid scale turbulence model (Large Eddy Simulation, LES). An original numerical tool is used for the complete description of the plunging breaking(More)
We present a new fast vector penalty-projection method (VPP ε), issued from noticeable improvements of previous works [7, 3, 4], to efficiently compute the solution of unsteady Navier-Stokes/Brinkman problems governing incompressible multiphase viscous flows. The method is also efficient to solve anisotropic Darcy problems. The key idea of the method is to(More)

In 1999, Jean-Paul Caltagirone and Jérô me Breil have developed in their paper [Caltagirone, J. Breil, Sur une méthode de projection vectorielle pour la résolution des e ´quations de Navier–Stokes, C.R. Acad. Sci. Paris 327(Série II b) (1999) 1179–1184] a new method to compute a divergence-free velocity. They have used the grad(div) operator to extract the(More)
