A Comparison of Methods in Fully Nonlinear Boundary Element Numerical Wave Tank Development

  title={A Comparison of Methods in Fully Nonlinear Boundary Element Numerical Wave Tank Development},
  author={J. Clay Harris and Etienne Dombre and Michel Benoit and Stephan T. Grilli},
We present the development and validation of an efficient numerical wave tank (NWT) solving fully nonlinear potential flow (FNPF) equations. This approach is based on a variation of the 3D-MII (mid-interval interpolation) boundary element method (BEM), with mixed Eulerian-Lagrangian (MEL) explicit time integration, of Grilli et al., which has been successful at modeling many phenomena, including landslide-generated tsunami, rogue waves, and the initiation of wave breaking over slopes. The MEL… CONTINUE READING
