Abstract

Laboratory measurements of waves and currents collected around low-crested structures tested in a three-dimensional wave basin are used to calibrate and/or validate numerical models of varying complexity. Waves generated in the basin included regular as well as irregular, directional waves. Numerical models applied in the analysis were both of the phase-averaged and depth-integrated two-dimensional (in the horizontal) type, as well as a fully three-dimensional Navier-Stokes solver. The results obtained from the comparison of model results to measurements are presented and discussed.
