Abstract
    This paper represents a solver for numerical simulation of breaking waves, developed at Ghent University using an implicit cellstaggered VOF finite volume approach. The mathematical model is based on unsteady incompressible Navier-Stokes (NS) equations with a free surface. A flux-difference splitting approach with the MUSCL type (or the ENO scheme) and a central-difference scheme are applied for evaluation of the inviscid and viscous fluxes, respectively. A projection method is involved for coupling of the pressure and the velocity. A free surface is tracked with the VOF method, in which the approximate dynamic boundary conditions are implemented. In addition, second- and fourth-order artificial damping terms are introduced to the velocity normal to the cell face. A Sommerfeld radiation condition is implemented at the open boundary to dissipate the energy of outgoing waves. Moreover, cut-cell techniques are utilized for treatment of an arbitrary geometry. The solver can capture many physical phenomena during the interaction of waves with a dike, when a wave run-up and overtopping over an impermeable sea dike are performed in a numerical wave tank.
