Simulation of Green Water Loading by a Three-Dimensional Two-Phase Numerical Model

R. Wemmenhove, G.E. Loots, R. Luppes, A.E.P. Veldman



This paper describes a study of simulation of green water loading on the deck of a ship. The numerical model has been developed as a one-phase model initially, but has been extended to take two-phase flow effects into account. The method used for the simulations is based on the Navier-Stokes equations and the model is discretised using a finite volume method. Pressure, density and velocity are calculated in the entire flow domain. As a first step, the two-phase flow model considers air as an incompressible second phase. The incompressible two-phase flow model has been validated on a dambreak problem.
