Data collection method:

Numerical simulations using potential flow solver DIFFRACT and viscous flow solver in OpenFOAM. DIFFRACT is a FORTRAN program based on higher-order Boundary Element Method, which can analyze interactions between waves and complex structures in frequency domain. The list of publications for DIFFRACT can be found at https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?hl=en&user=_Ec8JVUAAAAJ&view_op=list_works&pagesize=100. The OpenFOAMĀ® toolbox is a free, open-source CFD software package written in C++, which can solve compressible and incompressible Navier-Stokes equations on finite volume meshes. By being open source, OpenFOAM offers researchers complete freedom to customize and extend its existing functionality.
