Interactions between waves and breakwaters (1)

Description

The Maritime Engineering Division University of Salerno (MEDUS) has developed a CAD/CFD procedure to analyze the interactions between waves and breakwaters (submerged or emerged). In the numerical simulations the motion of the fluid within the interstices is simulated by integrating the RANS equations inside the voids. The breakwaters are thus modelled by overlapping three-dimensional elements (AccropodeTM, Core-locTM, Xbloc®, Stones), one by one, just as it happens in the full size construction or in physical laboratory tests.
