Transfer of Boussinesq waves to a Navier-Stokes solver: Application to wave loads on a offshore wind turbine foundation

Abstract

Wave load and wave run-up is a very important issue to offshore wind turbine foundations. These are often installed in relatively shallow water on for instance sand banks. Therefore the non-linear shoaling and subsequently the force and run-up are important to address. The paper presents a method to combine a Boussinesq model with a CFD model. This gives an accurate tool to estimate wave loads on the foundations at acceptable computational times.
