ABSTRACT
Many water wave problems in marine and offshore engineering are studied using nonlinear free surface
wave model which consists of a potential flow equation supplemented with kinematic and dynamic free
surface boundary conditions. These equations can be derived from Luke's variational principle [3]. Such
a variational principle has the advantage of completely describing the physics of the problem using a
