An infinite mapping layer for deep water waves

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In order to accurately and efficiently model the propagation of surface gravity waves in infinitely deep domains, we introduce an infinite mapping layer which transforms the unbounded physical domain into a bounded computational domain by means of a mapping function. The method was implemented in the framework of the finite element method, where it can be straightforwardly combined with a perfectly matched layer to model unbounded domains in horizontal direction. Finally, the application of the method is demonstrated by a simple 3D example. (© 2017 Wiley‐VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim)
