To confirm the findings of the BreaKin JIP described above and to get more insights in scale effects involved in local loading and the negative vertical impact force, it is proposed to carry out CFD simulations. Initially the following set of simulations are proposed:
ComFLOW The proposed scope of work will be carried out with ComFLOW. ComFLOW is a 1-phase / 2-phase CFD free-surface flow solver with sharp interface reconstruction (PLIC VoF). ComFLOW is specifically designed for the simulation of complex freesurface flows in offshore and maritime applications. In previous JIP projects relevant related topics have been studied, implemented and validated, such as:
Participation fee is 25k Euros for BreaKin participants and 35k Euros for non-BreaKin participants.
