The course is an introduction to two-dimensional numerical modeling of wave-structure interaction, including:

  • Active wave generation and absorption
  • Mesh generation with CORAL
  • Application of IH2VOF to slope dikes
  • Application of IH2VOF to vertical dikes
  • Display of calculated results using IH2VOF-GUI

At the end of the course, the student will be able to:

– Simulate the hydrodynamic processes of the breaker zone and wave interaction with coastal structures, including random sea states and considering conventional or unconventional multilayer coastal structures.

– Analyze the functionality and stability of coastal structures: wave reflection and transmission, wave evolution on coastal structures, wave dissipation, overtopping discharge and wave-induced forces and moments.

– Visualization of results using the IH2VOF-GUI.
