The offshore industry, MARIN and the Universities of Groningen and Delft have worked together successfully in the development of the Volume of Fluid method ComFLOW to study complex free-surface flows around offshore structures.
Important aspects have been studied, implemented and validated like:
- Sloshing in LNG containment systems
- Air entrapment during wave impacts (“cushioning”)
- Wave run-up and deck impacts on semi-submersibles and TLPs
