Hydrodynamic wave loading on structures plays an important role in areas such as coastal protection, harbor design and offshore constructions (FPSO’s, mooring), and there is a need for its prediction up to a detailed level (max./min. pressures, duration of pressure peaks, shear stresses, etc.). In close cooperation with industry, long-year joint-industry projects are carried out to develop a numerical simulation method: the CFD method ComFLOW. The two major application areas are the prediction of extreme wave forces on offshore platforms and offloading vessels, and the prediction of impact forces on coastal protection structures. The paper will present a short overview of the method, some recent results and future plans.
