The numerical simulation using LES-WASS-3D is developed to investigate the wave run-up on the revetment along the canal. Interaction of ocean wave, current, and Kelvin wave is investigated on 40 conditions varying the number of ship, cruising direction, and relative cruising location of ships, when a 650TEU container cruises in the canal. The mean wave run-up heights on the revetment are compared for every simulated conditions. The largest height of wave run-up is generated at the C-pair condition and the wave run-up generated at the canal entrance is larger than that at the inside canal. When Kelvin waves is interacted with the current, the mean wave run-up height is increased approximate 10% compared with no current condition.
