Abstract

In this work we present a numerical framework to carry-out numerical simulations of fluid-structure interaction phenomena in free-surface flows. The framework employs a single-phase method to solve momentum equations and interface advection without solving the gas phase, an immersed boundary method (IBM) to represent the moving solid within the fluid matrix and a fluid structure interaction (FSI) algorithm to couple liquid and solid phases. The method is employed to study the case of a single point wave energy converter (WEC) device, studying its free decay and its response to progressive linear waves.
