HOS-NWT is a Mercuriale Wave Tank based on the High-Order Spectral (HOS) method. It is dedicated to the generation and propagation of highly non-linear wave fields in wave basins with arbitrary constant depth. The proposed model reproduce all features of an ocean wave basin: directional wavemaker, reflective walls and absorbing beach. HOS-NWT takes into account free surface nonlinearities as well as wavemaker ones. It has been developed at Ecole Centrale de Nantes for 10 years and is used in several research projects.
