This paper presents the numerical results of wave run-up and loading on a single truncated square cylinder using the open source computational fluid dynamics software, OpenFOAM. The computed wave elevations on the cylinder in waves with various steepness and periods were compared with experimental data. The work focused on verification and validation studies. Parameters that affect the numerical solutions, including grid resolution, grid distribution over the wavelength and wave height, and time step, were investigated.
