Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Linear Free Surface Gravity Waves
 

Summary: Discontinuous Galerkin Method for Linear Free
Surface Gravity Waves
V.R. Ambati, O. Bokhove and J.J.W. Van der Vegt
Numerical Analysis and Computational Mechanics Group,
University of Twente, The Netherlands.

Motivation
Stable numerical schemes for free surface gravity water waves
are useful in the areas of offshore and marine engineering.
Applications:
Determine wave loads and wave resistance on ships and
offshore structures.
Control wave generation in a model basin with our nu-
merical tool (Figure 1).
Study the wave induced motion on ships and offshore
structures (Figure 2).

Aim
To develop a stable numerical method for free surface gravity
water waves of a potential flow model using discontinuous
