Coastal Engineering Simulations

Ascertaining that a marina or a harbor will be well protected from oncoming waves is a difficult job. In certain cases, special solutions are needed and it is difficult to rely on best practice guidelines. Coastal engineering simulations using CFD can offer a high resolution insight into the weak points of the project, while taking into account all relevant phenomena.

Bottom-fixed structures, floating structures that are sailing by, or that are moored (such as pontoons), can all be modelled in a single CFD simulation. The interaction of floating and sailing objects through their generated and reflected wave fields is fully resolved. Wind waves can be generated, whether they are irregular, directional or regular waves, to offer a realistic simulation that encapsulates all of the worst case scenarios.
During the simulation all relevant physical quantities are monitored, such as wave elevation at arbitrary locations, motion signals of any floating objects, forces in mooring lines, velocity profiles in narrow gaps and similar, to offer a complete picture of the phenomena that you can use to make your design better.
