Abstract

A new free-surface flow model, VOFbreak2, is presented. This numerical model obtains finite difference solutions for incompressible flow on and in coastal structures, such as rubble mound breakwaters. The key innovation is the implementation of a porous flow model, which represents the flow in the coarse granular rock material of breakwaters. Other features include the VOF free-surface treatment, incident wave boundaries, portability of the code and adequate post-processing tools. The unique possibility to validate the model with prototype data from field monitoring is discussed.
