A Fully Nonlinear HOBEM with the Domain Decomposition Method for Simulation of Wave Propagation and Diffraction

A higher-order boundary element method (HOBEM) for simulating the fully nonlinear regular wave propagation and diffraction around a fixed vertical circular cylinder is investigated. The domain decomposition method with continuity conditions enforced on the interfaces between the adjacent sub-domains is implemented for reducing the computational cost. By adjusting the algorithm of iterative procedure on the interfaces, four types of coupling strategies are established, that is, Dirchlet/Dirchlet-Neumman/Neumman (D/D-N/N), Dirchlet-Neumman (D-N), Neumman-Dirchlet (N-D) and Mixed Dirchlet-Neumman/Neumman-Dirchlet (Mixed D-N/N-D). Numerical simulations indicate that the domain decomposition methods can provide accurate results compared with that of the single domain method. According to the comparisons of computational efficiency, the D/D-N/N coupling strategy is recommended for the wave propagation problem. As for the wave-body interaction problem, the Mixed D-N/N-D coupling strategy can obtain the highest computational efficiency.
