|Abstract: ||Abstract:The purpose of the present study is to develop a numerical model for the investigation of water waves propagating over a pair of impermeable submerged obstacles. The mathematic model is formulated by coupling solutions of the Navier–Stokes equations and transport equations for the surface elevation using the volume of fluid method. Based on a staggered computational mesh, an explicit numerical algorithm is employed with a predictor–corrector procedure of pressure and velocity field. The proposed model provides good agreement with other experimental results and validates its good performance. Regarding the spatial harmonic evolutions of various cases, it is noted that the present fluctuating mode of harmonic amplitudes exists upstream and at the gap between obstacles. The results show that the nonlinearity of propagating waves becomes stronger than the initial wave in such areas, and reveals much steeper wave profiles compared to the initial ones. The fluctuating harmonic amplitudes vary with the gap width and form two hydrodynamic cycles. The vortices play an important role in the wave reflection as they form a water column wall to reflect the incoming waves. The reflection ratio depends on the extent of vortex development near the upstream obstacle. The maximum wave reflection occurs in cases with dimensionless gap width S∕LS∕L equal to 3/8 and 7/8 in this study.
