A joint effort between MARINTEK, DNV GL and Technip has been made to develop a set of benchmark solutions for the validation of numerical wave tanks. High-fidelity measurements of the wave field around a vertical circular cylinder from a scaled model test have been selected as the benchmark cases. A reference numerical wave tank based on a commercial CFD software and the Euler-Overlay Method as far-field closure has been validated by grid convergence test and comparison with the model test data. The validated numerical solution can be used as a benchmark solution to validate other numerical wave tanks.
