A two-dimensional numerical wave flume is established based on the finite-volume method. The movement border method is adopted as a wave generator at one end of the flume. The volume of fluid (VOF) method is used to track the wave surface. In the numerical simulation, the plane net is simplified as porous-media model. The coefficients of the porous media are determined by the least squares method. In this way, the porous-media model will has the same pressure drop with the fishing net. To validate the numerical model, the numerical results are compared with the data obtained from corresponding physical model tests. It is found that the numerical results are in good agreement with the corresponding experimental data. Using the proposed numerical model, wave propagation through a plane net with different net solidities, different attack angles as well as two nets with different spacing distances are investigated. The impacts of the wave height and wavelength on the wave propagation through the plane net are also discussed.
