  • There are many issues in fluid structure interactions when dealing with the free surface flows in a sloshing tank. For example the problem of how yielding a highly nonlinear wave with a simple forced motion over a short duration is of concern here. Nonlinear waves are generated in a rectangular tank which is forced horizontally; its motion consists of a single cycle of oscillation. One of the objectives is to end up with a shape of the free surface yielding a wide range of critical flows by tuning few parameters. The configuration that is studied here concerns a plunging breaker accompanied with a critical jet where great kinematics are simulated. The numerical simulations are performed with a twodimensional code which solves the fully nonlinear free surface boundary conditions in Potential Theory.
