The Deflection Angle Impact on the Oil Containment by Boom Based on the Numerical Wave Flume
The 2-D numerical wave flume, based on the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations and the standard turbulence model, was developed to simulate the turbulent flows with the free surface, in which the volume of fluid (VOF) method was used to handle the large deformation of the free surface and the relaxation approach of combined wave generation and absorbing was implemented, utilizing the commercial CFD software-FLUENT. The relationship of the wave parameters, initial failure velocity and the deflection angle was investigated.
