Abstract

A novel free surface immersed boundary-lattice Boltzmann method for wave–structure interaction and hydrodynamic force estimation is introduced. First, the proposed model is applied to incident wave propagation in a shallow water zone. The wave–breakwater interactions and wave forces on a breakwater are then analysed using the method. The results agreed with those of Goda’s formulae, confirming that the proposed model has a high potential for application to complex analysis of coastal engineering problems.

Application of a Free-surface Immersed Boundary-lattice Boltzmann Modeling to Wave Forces Acting on a Breakwater
