The interaction of waves with a weakly submerged horizontal circular cylinder is studied numerically, solving 2-D Navier-Stokes equations with reference to former experimental sessions in a wave flume. A selection of aspects of the viscous wave-body interaction is analyzed, in particular the free surface elevation perturbed by the obstacle, the pressure at the body surface, the inertia coefficient of the Morison equation and finally the generation, persistence and merging of vorticity structures detached from the cylinder.

Abstract

The interaction of waves with a weakly submerged horizontal circular cylinder is studied numerically, solving 2-D Navier-Stokes equations with reference to former experimental sessions in a wave flume. A selection of aspects of the viscous wave-body interaction is analyzed, in particular the free surface elevation perturbed by the obstacle, the pressure at the body surface, the inertia coefficient of the Morison equation and finally the generation, persistence and merging of vorticity structures detached from the cylinder.
