Abstract

In an earlier study, we identified the combined boundary element and weighted finite difference method (WFDM) used to analyze water flow (Kanoh et al. [1]). In order to apply the combined method in our problem the analytical region is divided into four sub-domains. (1) The first and third are irrotational flow domains that exist on both sides of a submerged breakwater, in which the moving boundary technique and the intricate boundary conditions are managed by the boundary-element method (Kanoh et al. [2]). (2) The third is a turbulent flow domain that is located around the breakwater, in which the WFDM provides an accurate solution for the wave and water motion through the openings of the breakwater. (3) The four
