Coupled potential flow and CFD modelling for marine and off–shore applications, two–phase flow modelling, coupled solvers
Numerical modelling of coupled potential and viscous flow for marine applications, finished 2016
Development of an efficient and reliable numerical algorithm for arbitrary potential flow/CFD coupling based on:
- Spectral Wave Explicit Navier–Stokes Equations (SWENSE),
- Implicit relaxation zones,
- Finite Volume Method (FVM) with
- Embedded free surface approach (corrected interpolation schemes near the free surface accounting for jumps in discontinuous fields).
Implementation as a part of the Naval Hydro pack based on OpenFOAM software.
