Using a lagrangian particle method for deck overtopping


Journal Article

Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) methods have recently been used to examine water wave motions. Here we apply SPH to the problem of water waves impinging on a deck of an offshore platform. Laboratory experiments by Cox and Ortega (2001) are used to motivate the numerical modeling efforts. Realistic comparisons are found, although no direct one-one comparisons are made as the resolution of the numerical model was insufficient at that time.
