Abstract

This paper aims to model numerically the generation and propagation of free surface waves in walled containers. Two different techniques are used: the finite volume method (FVM) with a homogeneous multiphase condition and the Smoothed-Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). A good agreement is found between numerical and experimental results, which include comparisons of the free-surface evolution and the pressure distribution along the wall's container. Significant changes of the pressure profiles are found depending on the filling fluid used.
