Abstract

A deeper understanding of physics is required when the complexity of events increases. A complex event consists of many detailed interacting processes. The complete picture asks for an understanding of each of the processes individually.
Numerical computing in the maritime industry is becoming more relevant due to the increase in usability and relatively low costs compared to experiments. The numerical results allow for analysis at the required level of detail. The complexity of water-wave impacts on offshore structures necessitates innovative numerical approaches because conventional analytical techniques fall short of representing the non-linearity in these events....
