AbstractA 3D dispersive numerical model has been developed and utilized to study the interacted wave field in the Offshore Engineering Basin (OEB) of National Research Council Canada in the presence of array of structures. The basic physics of the numerical model follows the concept of the depth averaged velocity distribution along with an enhanced dispersion relation. The Alternating Direction Implicit (ADI) algorithm has been employed for the solution of the governing equations. As an application, the model has been used to study the wave propagation in the presence of different combinations of structures where the effects due to the reflection and diffraction are also incorporated. Relevant experiments are carried out in the OEB. Total 10 wave probes are deployed to measure the data at different locations in the Basin. Later the numerical results are compared with the experimental results in the OEB at different probe locations for different wave and structure conditions. The comparisons of the numerical results show great agreement with the experimental results. In this paper the results for regular waves will only be presented and discussed.
