• The OBREC is a multifunctional device to protect harbors and produce energy from incident waves. • The 2DV RANS VOF numerical model was calibrated on experimental results and adopted to assess the pressures across the structure. • The results of the calibrated model well reproduce the tested conditions for ordinary waves in terms of average overtopping discharge and uplift pressures.

Abstract

• The OBREC is a multifunctional device to protect harbors and produce energy from incident waves. • The 2DV RANS VOF numerical model was calibrated on experimental results and adopted to assess the pressures across the structure. • The results of the calibrated model well reproduce the tested conditions for ordinary waves in terms of average overtopping discharge and uplift pressures.
