Although today's computers facilitate increasingly sophisticated numerical analysis, the physics of gravity waves are complex and only simple models have so far been solved. This volume provides an important contribution to the evolution of this intriguing field. Recent progress in the areas of nonlinear wave-structure and wave-wave interaction is reviewed and special attention is paid to higher-order effects and their influence on the dynamic behaviour of marine and offshore structures. ? Features three chapters on the development of solution methods for nonlinear free surface flows. ? Presents four competitive approaches: desingularized method, Euler-Lagrangian approach with boundary elements, interface-tracking and interface-capturing methods in finite volume discretization. ? Discusses nonlinear diffraction loads on offshore structures, propagation of second-order Stokes waves in a laboratory wave tank, and water wave instability in three-dimensional radiation problems. ? Includes an eight page colour section. Covering both practical problems and mathematical methods, Nonlinear Water Wave Interaction will be invaluable to offshore engineers and naval architects.It will also be of interest to CFD scientists and applied mathematicians.
