  • Abstract

    In this article, numerical modeling of a 2-D wave tank has been investigated by applying completely nonlinear condition for water surface elevation. This has been accomplished based on potential theory, the combined Eulerian-Lagrangian scheme for time marching and using boundary element method. Other physical and numerical attributes of the current work are: physical modeling in time domain, time integration by 4th order Runge-Kutta method, implementation of appropriate condition at the entrance boundary for wave generation, application of artificial dampers at the exit part of the wave tank, and ultimately numerical smoothing of the resulting free surface by using interpolation through spline functions. At the end, effective parameters on the generated wave have been analyzed and the generated wave has also been validated against the result of the linear wave theory.
