Abstract

In this paper, we further study coupling of surface waves with a current over a cut cell, based on our highly efficient Navier-Stokes solver [3,4], named LVOF. This solver is constructed by a novel VOF finite volume approach that incorporates surface tension, coupled with a dynamic subgrid-scale (SGS) turbulence model. Additionally, we design two types of numerical wave-current generators: an external and internal generators, while the outgoing waves are dissipated by a breaking-type wave absorber placed at the opposite end. Based on LVOF, we wish that our results can provide valuable base for the analysis of wave-current-body interaction, according to the well-designed wave-current generator.
