In this presentation, an unstructured, low-Mach, balanced-force, volume of fluid numerical methodology is overviewed whose prime objective is to target the modeling of wave-based renewable energy devices using high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics approaches. A control volume finite element numerical discretization, which includes novel residual-based stabilization for the volume of fluid equation, is established. Although WEC mod/sim requirements lack typical multiphysics complexities, other technical challenges exist, such as ensuring non-diffusive fluid transport in the presence of... Read More
