Three-dimensional interaction of waves and porous coastal structures. Part I: numerical model formulation

Abstract: This paper and its companion paper (Lara et al. (2012)) describe the capability of a new model, called IH-3VOF, to simulate wave?structure interaction problems using a three-dimensional approach, when porous structures are present. The lack of a universal approach for the formulation of porous media flow equations has motivated a new derivation in the present work. Applications dealing with heterogeneous media, where porosity varies along the porous body, such as the study of multilayered rubble-mound breakwaters, are the final objective of the study. In this first paper, a new derivation of the equations, eliminating the limitations imposed by previous approaches is presented. The model integrates a new set of equations which covers physical processes associated with flow interaction with porous structures. The model considers the multiphase VARANS equations, a volume-averaged version of the traditional RANS (Reynolds-Averaged Navier?Stokes) equations. Turbulence is modeled using a k?? approach, not only at the clear fluid region but also inside the porous media. A VOF technique is used to track the free surface. In this first paper, the model has been validated using laboratory data of a two-dimensional flow. In the companion paper the model is further validated with new experimental data sets, considering porous and solid structures as well as the presence of air. The model predictions present an excellent agreement with the laboratory measurements.
