Abstract

The Navier-Stokes equations along with the exact free surface boundary conditions are solved to simulate the deformation of water waves propagating over submerged dikes. The incident waves are generated by a piston-type wavemaker set up in the computation domain. Numerical results have been compared with experimental data to verify the accuracy. Transformations of waves of different Ursell numbers passing over trapezoidal dikes are studied and compared. The Fast Fourier Transform method was applied to decompose the transformed waves and the higher harmonics. The main characteristics of the flow fields are also briefly discussed.
