{Numerical simulations of wave phenomena necessarily have to be carried out in a limited computational domain. This implies that incoming waves should be prescribed properly, and the outgoing waves should leave the domain without causing reflections. In this paper we will present an enhanced type of such generating and absorbing boundary conditions (GABC). The new approach is applied in studies of extreme hydrodynamic wave impact on rigid and floating structures in offshore and coastal engineering, for which the VOF-based CFD simulation tool ComFLOW has been developed.
