Indo-UK Workshop on Recent Advances in Wave-Structure Interaction, 18th Feb 2018
Hydrodynamic modelling forms the basis for many other modelling studies,viz., wave-structure interactions, sediment transport, morphology are being investigated. Wave- structure interaction plays a major role in the design of the marine and offshore structures, particularly during the extreme sea state. There has been advances in the general area of hydrodynamics worldwide in particular to improve the understanding of highly nonlinear wave-rigid or elastic structure interactions. Although, both physical and numerical modelling are employed, the later method had become more popular and handy in addressing a variety of problems, like slamming, green water, extreme roll response, etc.
The key is understand the issues related to the survivability and safe operation of these structures their behaviour in hostile marine environment experiencing extreme wave climate including that due to the sea level rise. This strongly relies on the reliability of hydrodynamic impact load predictions during the early design process to reliably quantify the expected loadings.
Capturing all of the physical processes involved in such extreme wave interaction with a freely floating deformable body requires an extremely computing-intensive simulation of high CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) resolution that is currently prohibitive for routine design purposes. Current research works like, coupling the efficient fully nonlinear potential theory (FNPT) with time-consuming mesh-based CFD model to accelerate the simulation by minimizing the computational domain that have been developed by IITM and City university, UK will be discussed in the workshop. Recent development of software by IITM to handle a number of complicated hydrodynamic problems including non-linear waves and their interaction with rigid, flexible fixed and floating structures will be presented and discussed.
