CFD models are promising in predicting non-linear wave loads on fixed and floating offshore structures. The NS3 model is described in this paper and it has been validated by means of model test such as wave run-up on monopiles in regular waves. The goal for the use of the NS3 model is to make a detailed investigation of the effect of 2D waves on the run-up height. The focused wave is designed by choosing the phases of the linear harmonic components such that they are in phase at a certain target location. The aim of this paper is the approach on the ability of NS3 model to reproduce these focused wave groups and compare with the results of the experimental tests carried out at Grossen WellenKanal (GWK).
