Abstract

A new approach which uses the full-space Green's function is proposed to eliminate the influence of the finitude of the segmented free surface in the indirect formulation of the Boundary Element method. The absence of a contribution from the far parts of the free surface that are neglected in the computation is compensated for, assuming that the wave field along flat parts of the surface far from the localized irregularity can be substituted by the reference solution. The nonphysical waves radiated at the two ends of the segmented model of the free surface are eliminated efficiently by this approach. -from Authors
