Abstract


A numerical wave tank based on OpenFOAM was developed to investigate internal solitary waves. The interface of fluids was captured by VOF method. In this paper, comparisons between numerical results and different theoretical solutions were made to evaluate the performance of the numerical wave tank. The result shows that it is a feasible way to further explore the behavior of internal solitary waves by numerical wave tank based on OpenFOAM.
