Two-Phase-Flow Unstructured Grid Solver: Application to Tsunami Wave Impact

Abstract : This paper describes the CFD of incompressible air-water flows by solving Euler equations with a 2-phase flow model leading to a hyperbolic system of conservation laws solved with a finite volume discretization on unstructured grids. An artificial compressibility approach allows for a fully explicit scheme for an efficient parallel implementation. The numerical model is based on a low Mach number preconditioning and a 2nd-order Riemann solver. Applications to breaking waves on a 15% slope with and without the influence of macro-roughness are performed concerning impact and run-up processes on the beach.
