Abstract
Scour around monopiles has been widely studied, however, scour protection—made of stones—around monopiles has not. To cover this knowledge gap, this work presents the development of a numerical model for the study of the flow within the scour protection around monopiles and the first results obtained with this model. The development of the model was done using fully open source tools that have been thriving in the scientific community, such as the OpenFOAM framework, for the numerical model, and the Python programming language for the parametrization of the mesh and setup of the cases. This model approaches the flow within the scour protection as a porous medium. The latter has successfully been used by Nielsen et al. (2013). Their and our results show a good agreement with experimental results.
