The research delves into the challenge of greenwater loading on stationary vessels, a significant concern in maritime engineering. It systematically evaluates three distinct breakwater designs - windshield, horizontal grillage, and perforated - for their efficacy in mitigating greenwater impact. Utilizing the ANSYS Fluent CFD software, the study simulates the interaction between wave dynamics and these breakwater structures. The objective is to identify which design most effectively reduces the pressure and impact of greenwater on a ship's bow. By validating the simulation results against experimental data, the research provides critical insights into optimizing breakwater design. This has broader implications for enhancing vessel safety and operational stability in challenging sea conditions, making it a pivotal contribution to the field of maritime engineering.
