Numerical Modeling of Extreme Wave Slamming on Cylindrical Offshore Support Structures

  title={Numerical Modeling of Extreme Wave Slamming on Cylindrical Offshore Support Structures},
  author={Carsten Corte and Stephan T. Grilli},
In this paper, we study the impact on cylindrical piles of extreme waves (freak waves), generated by directional wave focusing. Waves are numerically modeled based on a boundary element discretization of fully nonlinear potential flow equations with free surface evolution. Higher-order boundary elements are used for the spatial discretization, and a higher-order time integration scheme based on the Taylor series expansion is applied. We model the pressure impact of a freak wave on a cylindrical… CONTINUE READING
