• CFD Simulations of Multi-Directional Irregular Wave Interaction With a Large Cylinder 

      Wang, Weizhi; Kamath, Arun; Bihs, Hans (Chapter, 2018)
      Ocean waves are random by nature and can be regarded as a superposition of a finite number of regular waves travelling in different directions with different frequencies and phases. Cylinder-shaped objects are commonly ...
    • A comparison of different wave modelling techniques in an open-source hydrodynamic framework 

      Wang, Weizhi; Kamath, Arun; Pakozdi, Csaba; Bihs, Hans (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Modern design for marine and coastal activities places increasing focus on numerical simulations. Several numerical wave models have been developed in the past few decades with various techniques and assumptions. Those ...
    • Investigation of Focusing Wave Properties in a Numerical Wave Tank with a Fully Nonlinear Potential Flow Model 

      Wang, Weizhi; Kamath, Arun; Pakozdi, Csaba; Bihs, Hans (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Nonlinear wave interactions and superpositions among the different wave components and wave groups in a random sea sometimes produce rogue waves with extremely large wave heights that appear unexpectedly. A good understanding ...
    • Large scale cfd modelling of wave propagation in Sulafjord for the E39 project 

      Wang, Weizhi; Bihs, Hans; Kamath, Arun; Arntsen, Øivind Asgeir (Chapter; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The coastal high way project E39 aims at building a continuous ferry-free road connection along the west coast of Norway. One of the major challenges in the project is to replace ferries with new fjord-crossing methods ...
    • Large Scale CFD Modelling of Wave Propagation into Mehamn Harbour 

      Wang, Weizhi; Bihs, Hans; Kamath, Arun; Arntsen, Øivind Asgeir (Chapter, 2017)
      Ocean wave propagations into harbours are large scale phenomena with complex wave transformations. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has the advantage of capturing most physics with few assumptions. It has also been ...
    • Large-Scale Phase-Resolved Wave Modelling for the Norwegian Coast 

      Wang, Weizhi (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:235, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
      The coastal Highway Route E39 aims to build a continuous road connection along the west coast of Norway. Floating bridges are planned to replace the ferries at seven major fjords along the route. These innovative floating ...
    • Multi-directional Irregular Wave Modelling with CFD 

      Wang, Weizhi; Bihs, Hans; Kamath, Arun; Arntsen, Øivind Asgeir (Chapter, 2019)
      The design of coastal structures requires accurate simulations of the wave conditions. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) captures most complexities of the wave physics with few assumptions and therefore is considered to ...
    • Multiscale modeling of wave propagation on the Norwegian Coast 

      Madrigal Sanchez, Alonso (Master thesis, 2018)
      Fjords coastlines are attributed to glaciers as the main agent of erosion. Thus, fjords are characterised by an irregular coastline configuration and rapid changes in their deep and steep slopes. These features generate a ...
    • Submerged Floating Tunnel: Water-Structure Interaction 

      Popov, Daniil (Master thesis, 2019)
      Denne studien fokuserer på interaksjonen mellom vann og et nedsenket flytende rør i homogene og lagdelte strømmer, samt utvikling av formet av tyngdekraften. Det siste ble gjort for å sette opp og validere numerisk modell ...
