Experimental and Numerical Simulations of Oblique Extreme Wave Conditions in Front of Breakwater’s Trunk

  • Rita Fernandes de Carvalho Professor

Abstract

Climate change studies already reported sea level rise as an accepted scenario, which induces changes in nearshore wave conditions. A large range of new experiences including water level, run-up, overtopping, hydrodynamic data for different wave steepness and direction was performed in the Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) wave basin for a rubble mound breakwater with a slope of 1(V):2(H). This work presents numerical simulations using OpenFOAM® of the hydrodynamics in that experiment focusing on oblique extreme wave boundary conditions and on their effects on the roundhead. We present a discussion of the wave generation boundary condition as well as comparisons of data from experimental measurements namely water level free-surface elevation and velocity data from ADV, as well as future guidelines to reach even better results.
