Numerical calculation of total horizontal wave force on a perforated caisson with a top cover based on smoothed particle hydrodynamics method

The revised smoothed particle hydrodynamics method based on Riemann solution has been used to calculate the total horizontal wave force acting on a perforated caisson with a top cover. The interaction process between the wave and perforated caisson is simulated in a two-dimensional numerical wave flume which is verified by linear regular wave theory, water particles flowing in or out of the dissipation chamber are also described in this article, including the distribution of velocity vector. The effect of main non-linear influence factor on total horizontal force is examined here; wave pressure distribution along the height of the perforated caisson in front, inner side or the rear wall of the dissipation chamber is also presented in order to exhibit the more practical performance of perforated caisson with a top cover. The relationship between the total horizontal force and top cover height is anglicized, and the influence of top cover height on components of the total horizontal force is discussed here. A comparison between the numerical total horizontal force results and values tested from the test data is finished; it can be seen that the numerical results agree well with the test data. It is concluded that the smoothed particle hydrodynamics method described in this article can be utilized to calculate the total horizontal force on a perforated caisson with a top cover.
