To study extreme hydrodynamic wave impact in offshore and coastal engineering, the VOF-based CFD simulation tool ComFLOW is being developed. Recently, much attention has been paid to turbulence modeling and local grid refinement. In particular, a blend of a QRmodel and a regularization model has been designed. The QR-model belongs to a class of modern eddy-viscosity models, where the amount of turbulent eddy viscosity is kept minimal. For validation, experiments have been carried out at MARIN.
