Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of the ocean for various human activities, such as overseas airports, artificial islands, mobile offshore bases, underground storage tanks, platforms for marine renewable energy converters, military applications, and so on, has attracted significant interest in ocean engineering over the past few decades. Studying how waves interact with offshore buildings has therefore become increasingly important since it provides valuable insight into several physical processes related to coastal protection. The fundamental equations of structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, and wave propagation are all included in the multidisciplinary topic of wave–structure interaction, as well as the significance of various types of boundary conditions. Additionally, modeling and simulating wave interaction with various marine structures is a subject of fundamental importance for a clear understanding of wave energy distribution and attenuation.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a platform for reporting on current developments in diverse mathematical techniques for the wave hydrodynamic performance of various maritime structures. It is highly recommended that studies take into account the importance of marine environments and different aspects of fluid–structure interaction. For research on coastal structures, this Special Issue may include theoretical, numerical, and experimental advancements.
