In the present work a non-linear dispersive wave model is developed for
the estimation of the horizontal forces on large submerged structures
where the effects of the wave diffraction are significant and the inertia
force becomes dominant.
The model is based on the Boussinesq type of
equations with appropriate reflective boundary conditions on the body
The Smagorinsky approximation is used for the representation
of the damping by eddies smaller than the computational grid size.
results for large cylinders as well as for square and rectangular section
caissons are presented and compared with experimental data.
Morison equation is an empirical formula for the estimation of the for...
